What’s next?  

The proposals are now being evaluated to start a two-stage selection process, a new feature, compared with previous editions.   

The first phase selects 24 teams (6 per challenge) who will then prepare their full proposal for the second selection phase, from which 12 finalist teams will emerge.   

These 12 finalist teams will have more than five months to prepare their application in time for the finale of EU Datathon on 20 October 2022. We wish to thank all the teams for their effort and interest in EU open data and EU Datathon and wish them good luck!
