Event Details

Join us for a Pre-DataHarvest Hack Day when we open up the EU procurement register! 

- Which companies win the biggest contracts from governments?

- What kind of services does your city outsource - and to what contractors?

The European procurement register holds data from +750,000 contracts awarded by public agencies across the member states [1]. Many data journalism projects could be hidden here, so let's make the data more accessible. 

What's on for the Hack Day:

- Procurement data: We'll be building some of the work already done by [2]

- Pull public bodies from procurement data  

- Farm subsidy data: Dive into a fresh batch of data from EU's largest spending programme [3]

If you're joining the Hack Day, you should also consider joining the DataHarvest on May 3-4. 

Thanks to Friedrich Lindenberg for help pushing the idea to the community and thanks to Joost Cassee for laying out some awesome groundwork scraping and parsing the TED-register. Also thanks to European Journalismfund for getting us set-up at the venue 

The Hack Day is organised by OpenSpending of the Open Knowledge Foundation and sponsored by Knight-Mozilla OpenNews.





Location: Erasmushogeschool, Brussels, Belgium
