The Data Science Initiative invites you to hack for Peace, Justice and Security. This is the second edition of our hackathon, and this year is going to be even bigger and better!

Would you like to help organisations such as the UNICRI Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Translators Without Borders and the National Rapporteur for Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation of Children with real global problems? Then apply now.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with teams on interesting data sets, building solutions for global challenges. Besides the serious stuff, this is also a great networking opportunity and you will get to enjoy great food, fun distractions and relaxing massages.

If you are not a hacker but want to be involved anyway?

Please contact Kate Dodgson:
