Data labs

The OpenCoesione data labs are organized in the form of hackathon, Data Study Lab or seminars, representing training sessions dedicated to the analysis of the data published on the OpenCoesione portal.

The main objective of these initiatives are to increase awareness of the stakeholders (such as public servants of national and regional administrations, journalists, students) about the contents and information that can be created starting from the data on the projects published on the portal and also to edit specific outputs from data. This can support strengthening the data-driven analysis of the policies, providing food for thought.
