Part II of the «Open Food Data Hackdays» in 2018 will continue in February, in Basel. At the «Open Food Data Hackdays» diverse food-interested actors, including big data specialists, software engineers, nutrition experts, farmers, app designers, students and entrepreneurs, are united. This potential is combined with publicly available data on the production, movement, consumption and impact of food, in order to enable groundbreaking projects.
