Copernicus welcome you to register for their Hackathon. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hackathon will be hosted as a virtual event.
The Hackathon is to be held online on 16-17-18 October 2020.
Hackathon is open for developers, designers, data wranglers, data journalists, data enthusiasts, and everyone interested in exploiting potential of cutting-edge developments. Topics covered are weather forecasting, risk modelling, and earth observation to improve information and services for emergency management and the general population, with a view to protect lives.
The Hackathon focuses on raising awareness about the Copernicus programme and promoting the benefits it brings to crisis management and response at local, regional, national, and international levels.
Participants of the Copernicus Hackathon are requested to use the provided tools and datasets in order deliver software developments supposing added value downstream services, such as:
- Develop web applications for policy-and decision-makers.
- Apps & services for specific public and commercial needs (e.g. tourism, energy, transport).
- Effective communication of risks (environmental or societal challenges) to the public (participatory approach, crowdsourcing and social media data).
The challenges that participants will address are shown in detail on the event website.

The Hackathon event is planned to be conducted by means of the Google Meet/Google Apps platform. Participants should have a Google account.
