Event Details

What is Hack4Europe?

It is a series of hack days organised by the Europeana Foundation and its partners Collections Trust, Museu Picasso, Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center and Swedish National Heritage Board. The hackathon roadshow will be held simultaneously in 4 locations (London, Barcelona, Poznan and Stockholm) in the week of 6 - 12 June and provide an exciting environment to explore the potential of open cultural data for social and economic growth in Europe. Find out more.


Where will it take place?

Hack4Europe! BCN is being coordinated by Museu Picasso in partnership with Europeana. The event will take place on 8 and 9 June in Museu Picasso, and will bring together up to 30 developers from the hosting country and other Mediterranean states.


What  will we do?

Participants will be encouraged to try out their ideas for creative reuse of the Europeana content and build prototypes shwocasing the social and business value of open cultural data. They will have access to the diverse and rich Europeana collections containing over 17 milion records through the Europeana Search API (incl. a test key and technical documentation) and Europeana Linked Open Data Pilot datasets, which currently comprise about 3 million Europeana records avaliable under a CC0 license.



Best prototypes will be awarded prizes during the hackathon days and four finalists will be invited to the Digital Agenda Assembly on 16-17 June in Brussels where Commissioner Ms. Neelie Kroes will award the winners during a special ceremony.



Developers must register in advance to indicate their interest. Depending on the demand for the event, organisers will decide on the final delegate list and send a confirmation letter to the selected ones. Europeana will cover the attendance costs (travel, accommodation and subsistence allowances) for all confirmed participants according to the Europeana reimbursement rules.
