Eight hackathon teams participated in the seminar. They worked further on their initial proposals and presented their upgraded prototype solutions in Thessaloniki, Greece on 18-19 September 2017.
Posters with latest versions of prototypes under development (posters are based on test data):
The first day was dedicated to presenting and discussing the solutions as they stand. The following thematic working sessions were organised:
- Skills mismatch analysis and indicators using several datasets;
- Big data analysis techniques and machine learning;
Cedefop and Eurostat, as well as experts in the above fields, joined the working sessions. The Agenda of the event can be found here.
During the second day the teams worked ‘offline’ and reflect upon further potential developments of their solutions, under the assumption that time and necessary resources would be available. The event concluded with a panel of representatives of Cedefop, Eurostat and various other DGs of the European Commission discussing the lessons learned and potential support for further development of the presented solutions (e.g. in terms of data provision).
