Hack4Europe! Dublin


Hack4Europe! Dublin is part of a series of hack days organised by the

Europeana Foundation and its partners throughout Europe. Hackathons

provide an exciting environment to explore the potential of open

cultural data from the Europeana portal to create products for social

and economic growth in Europe.

Europeana - www.europeana.eu http://www.europeana.eu - enables people

to explore over 20 million digital objects from Europe’s libraries,

museums, archives and galleries.

The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltact is organising the

Dublin hackathon in conjunction with the Irish Manuscripts Commission,

the Digital Humanities Observatory and Fáilte Ireland.

Hack4Europe! Dublin will take place on 24 and 25 September 2012 in the

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, Dublin 2.
