Hackathon Big Data for Bees

14.12 — 15.12.2018
Universiteit Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, Sint Janssingel, 's Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

We are very proud to present our next collaboration: the BigData4Bees hackathon!

On the 14th and 15th of December, at the Campus of the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, Farmhack will be delving into Big Data and Bees with pre selected teams that are committed to building data driven solutions using big data technologies to help save the bees!

The 30 hour hackathon is dedicated to support the goals of the “National Bee Strategy”. This strategy aims to ensure that pollinators and pollination are sustainably promoted and retained by 2030. We will use Big Data to help partners to work on the systematic and structural improvement of the habitat for all pollinators.

The hackathon is powered by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality. We are collaborating with distinguished partners, such as Naturalis, the national research institute for biodiversity, Wageningen University and Research and JADS, The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science.
