The LSE Data Science Institute hosted a research hackathon in November 2022 that provided participants with the chance to explore the environmental crises of wildfires and drought in Europe. Professor Ken Benoit (LSE) explains what happened.
CIVICA Research Hackathon Series
Hosted in turn by each CIVICA university, the CIVICA Research Hackathon Series aims to strengthen research collaboration between CIVICA institutions.
During each Hackathon, participants cooperate in teams in order to share their expertise and skills to solve a specific issue. Each Hackathon is centered around a certain theme.
The events bring together researchers, students and interested individuals, based at CIVICA partner institutions and beyond, to solve pressing issues of our time.
Recordings of each Hackathon will be available after the event.
