Hackathon: Big Data for Bees

Oct 30, 2018 | Countries, Events, the Netherlands

On 14 and 15 December, at the Campus of the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, the BigData4Bees hackathon will take place. Pre-selected teams that are committed to building data driven solutions to help save the bees will be delving into Big Data and Bees.

About the Hackathon

The 30 hour hackathon is dedicated to support the goals of the NL Pollinator Strategy ‘Bed & Breakfast for Bees’. This strategy aims to ensure that pollinators and pollination are sustainably promoted and retained by 2030. We will use Big Data to help partners to work on the systematic and structural improvement of the habitat for all pollinators.

The hackathon is powered by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality. We are collaborating with distinguished partners, such as Naturalis, the national research institute for biodiversity, Wageningen University and Research and JADS, The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science.
