Join us at #Diplohack in Brussels in the Council of the European Union on
the 29-30 of April.
For the first time in history, we can hack from inside the Council of the
European Union building! [image: :grinning:]

We invite everyone to take part, whether you’re a diplomat, developer,
designer, citizen, student, journalist or activist.

We will connect different profiles together in teams to use European data
for good.

The idea is that  in just 24 hours you create with this data a prototype or
MVP (minimum viable product) that is focused on transparency and
decision-making. We will support you in any way possible, explain the data
and help you get started.

Diplohack <http://www.diplohack.org/>, as the hackathon is called, forms
part of the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union
transparency strategy. The Brussels diplohack will run for 24 hours
straight and is part of the several Diplohacks across Europe. Those
hackathons intend to make the EU more transparent.

Tech developers, EU diplomats, journalists, citizen activists, social
entrepreneurs, data experts and many more will join forces and think of
transparency applications to make decision making in the EU searchable and

Everybody interested in the EU data can enter the hackathon. The winners of
the diplohack will be invited to compete in a European final in Amsterdam
during the TransparencyCamp Europe Unconference

The Diplohack event is organised the Council of the European Union, the
Dutch EU Presidency and Open Knowledge Belgium. Get your free ticket
