Open Data Challenge: EU's biggest ever public data competition

=Given that EU public bodies produce thousands upon thousands of datasets every year -- from how our tax money is spent to the quality of the air we breathe -- this new project is an open call to designers, developers, journalists, researchers and others to people to come up with something useful, valuable or interesting for European citizens built solely using open data.

Anyone can suggest an idea, submit working applications or visual representations or datasets originally assembled - in the respective four challenging areas. There is currently a total of €20,000 in prizes plus several awards to be won. The competition is open from 5th April until 5th June midnight. The winners will be selected by an all star cast of open data gurus (including EC Vice President Neelie Kroes and Sir Tim Berners-Lee) and announced in mid June at the European Digital Assembly in Brussels.

The Open Data Challenge is being coordinated by the Open Knowledge Foundation and the Open Forum Academy under the auspices of the Share PSI initiative, with many EU academic centers and institutional agencies in the supporting role.
