EBU-RTS (Big Data) Hackathon

RTS

In the framework of the EBU's Big Data Week, the EBU-Radio Télévision Suisse Hackathon will bring together journalists, social media experts, data experts and designers to reinvent digital storytelling to cover the refugee crisis. International partners, including Google News Lab, YouTube and the UNHCR will share insights and provide guidance.

The EBU-RTS Hackathon will take place at their headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland (23-24 March). It is not only for data experts, but also an opportunity for all journalists, social media experts and developers to network and learn about techniques, tools and approaches.

Participants will receive expert coaching, share knowledge and collaborate to create meaningful data visualizations and create new approaches to data journalism and digital storytelling.  The UNHCR will provide datasets in formats to be agreed.

The EBU's Media Online Steering Committee hopes the hackathon can be the launch pad for further collaboration - on a wider range of topics - between technology and editorial experts, with a focus on sharing insights and solving problems. 

For more information, please contact Mike Mullane (mullane@ebu.ch / @mikemullane) for the EBU and Michael De Lucia (michael.delucia@rts.ch) for RTS.
