Data scientists save our world!

Are you a data scientist or a data scientist in training and want to fight climate change? We’re looking for you! Be part of the first HIDA Berlin Datathon on April 2-3, 2020 and help us to fight climate change based on real-world data.

The Helmholtz Association with its 19 research centers offers unique capabilities to research our climate and find solutions to save it, from looking at regional climate models, to spanning an earth observation network for a birds-eye view on the long-term effects of global change on various environmental systems. Become part of this extensive effort at the HIDA Datathon and get to know our scientists and the important work they do.

Work on climate data together with our experts and find solutions to climate challenges

Choose from interesting challenges Helmholtz scientists need your support on. Work on well-prepared datasets from satellites to weather stations and the deep sea. Get creative and employ your analytics, scientific computation, machine learning and visualization skills and come to surprising solutions together with a team of data scientists from research centers, universities and companies. Apart from great food, entertainment and a location in the heart of Berlin for everyone, our partners also have exciting and climate-friendly prizes waiting for the winners
