Deloitte Datathon 2019

Monday 11th March & Tuesday 12th March

The third annual Deloitte Datathon – as part of Datafest 19 – will be the biggest and best Datathon to date.

Teams will be given a challenge to utilise data and technology to tackle a specific problem or topic area (challenge TBC). This challenge will be cross industry – covering all sectors including financial services, corporate and public sector.

This year’s event will be held in our Deloitte Offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh (participants will get to choose which location suits them best).

Timings are to be confirmed – but teams will work from both Glasgow and Edinburgh, before all participants are invited to Edinburgh for the final presentations and to hear from industry speakers.

The final presentations will take place on the evening of Tuesday 12th March, where teams will present their findings to a wider audience, while also hearing from leading speakers (across all sectors) who will share their insight and views. The evening will finish with some drinks and the winning teams being announced.

The target audience for the Datathon is anyone with an interest in data, technology / hackathons from all backgrounds including industry, students and academia.

Attendees can either be participants (attending both days) or can be presentation attendees (Tuesday evening). Participants can work from either Glasgow or Edinburgh, but should be willing to travel to Edinburgh for the final presentations and prize giving.

We are looking for approximately 30-35 participants and 50-60 additional presentation attendees.

As showcased over the last two years, running a Datathon showcases the true power of data and how through collaboration, new ideas and solutions can be created to make the world a better place.

Data is an aspect of everyday life at Deloitte - we would closely with clients from all sectors to better understand, organise and utilise their data.
