On June 5 and 6, 2015, Opendata.ch invites researchers and experts, designers, developers, journalists and all people who would like to embrace experimentation with data to participate in our hackdays in Zurich and Lausanne. Open research data from diverse scientific domains will be at the centre of this 2-day creative event, as well as the one big question: how can we get the most out of the huge potential of Open Data in scientific research?
With amazing speakers and team leaders, from Bastian Greshake and his open-source genetics network openSNP to biodiversity data with Donat Agosti or black holes and galaxies with Kevin Schawinski, the event’s schedule is pointing towards the great potential of open research data. We’ll listen, but first and foremost we’ll make things happen, putting in two days of intensive work to make data used and useful — all while having a great time together.
Join us for the next steps in the direction of Open Research Data!
