CALL FOR OPEN SCIENCE ENTHUSIASTS 26.-28.10

Join us on Wide – Open Source Science -event and create a new solution to improve the accessibility of science! This event is organised together with the University of Helsinki IT Center, CSC – IT Center for Science, National Library of Finland, and Helsinki Think Company.

Wide is a three-day challenge and a hackathon aimed for developers, students, researchers, technologists and other open science and open source enthusiasts. By joining this event, you will grow your professional network, develop your co-creation skills and substance knowledge on open science. You will be taken on an adventure across the beautiful historical bread factory (Leipätehdas), with all ending in a spectacular final where the fine-tuned solutions will be presented.

Wide consist of two tracks with two different approaches: 

CODING TRACK: If you're into code, you can dive into the technological side of open science and play with the provided data sets. Collect a team of 2-5 and craft a solution using the given APIs. 

MULTIDISCIPLINARY TRACK: If you're more of a generalist, you can take a more conceptual, multidisciplinary approach. Collect a team of 3-5 or let us match you with a team to co-create a concept to make science more accessible. 

WHAT: Hackathon & multidisciplinary challenge for open source science.

START: FRI 26/10 4PM

END: SUN 28/10 2PM
