Hack the outdoors

Join us in the North of Denmark for an inspiring hackathon aiming to invent new possibilities for outdoor tourism.


Go to Hackathon landing page

In this hackathon we will explore an ocean of open data and other data sources in order to invent new services, possibilities and business cases for outdoor tourism in the North. Your will work with local stakeholders will inspire you to work with food, cultural heritage, hiking routes, mountain biking, and other exiting challenges. 

Cold Hawai, National Park Thy, amazing beaches, eco-tourism, oysters, sand dunes, lighthouses, cliffs, birds, and wolves have already made Northern Jutland a hip destination for outdoor-excited travellers! But how do big data and open data provide new possibilities to innovate outdoor tourism in the North?

Over two intense days we will use data to come up with innovative solutions responding to 5-6 cases posed by key tourism actors in the North of Jutland.
We will spoil you with inspiring talks, clever mentors and delicious snacks and food! 

The best suggestions will be rewarded with prizes and possibilities for further development.

What to expect?

You don’t have to be a programmer to participate. A Hackathon is just as much about concept development, idea generation and development of business cases.

All you surfers, entrepreneurs, gamers, designers, software developers, tourists, travelers, artists, activists, fishermen, storytellers, scouts, hackers, journalists, open data enthusiasts, biologists and curious citizens: You are all welcome, with or without experience in Hackathons, data or tourism!

We provide

Free food, inspiration, concrete cases, a mix of open data, new platform adventures, mentors to guide you, prizes and a great venue in the Create Building at Aalborg University!

You bring

An open mind, curiosity to co-create, ideas to share, and eagerness to make new inventions!
