The 2014 EUhackathon ('Hack4Participation') took place on 2-3 December in Brussels. The theme was ‘Increasing EU Democratic Participation’: how to get EU citizens more involved into the EU policy-making process, hence democratizing the process, and how to better analyse the contributions to such processes, hence increasing transparency.
The 2013 edition of the EUhackathon ('Hack4YourRights') will take place on 24-25 September in Brussels. The theme this year is privacy, and more specifically visualising government access to citizens' private communications online.
