Contributing to the launch of Nordic Innovation’s AI and Data Program 2021-2024, a Nordic AI and data hackathon was conducted on 18-19th March 2022. The event was prepared and executed by Ramboll Management Consulting and Happy42 in close cooperation with Nordic Innovation and held at venues at the Danish Technical University in Copenhagen, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and virtually as a hybrid event.

The hackathon had a dual purpose. One primary objective was to create awareness around the AI and Data Program and engage important AI and data communities – both public and private – in utilizing Nordic open public data for the sustainable solutions of the future. There is great potential in strengthening visibility and awareness of public data in academic and industrial AI and data communities. In addition, the hackathon aimed to get insights on the applicability of Nordic datasets with high potential by getting students, start-ups, public data owners and private sector actors together and work with data
