Data from the view of Society, Science,
Art, Design and Technology
The fundamental aim of the Data is Beautiful project is to generate an international and national platform in partnership with Hungarian Educational Institutions and International Organizations to investigate and present data as a contemporary entity.
The ultimate goal of the project is to generate collaboration, strengthen participation and create broad visibility for the wide variety of questions concerning data visualization, thus the program emphasizes knowledge transfer through all events and the ensuing publication to obtain a comprehensive interdisciplinary overview of data visualization.
In conclusion, it is important to additionally emphasize that the numerous possibilities in these fields inevitably lead
to new professional opportunities for the emerging generation – the expert professionals of the future.
During the Data is Beautiful event-series we are organizing a Hackathon as part of Transparency International and Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) global call where in cooperation with several chapters from different regions we would like to promote, scale up and integrate innovative and sustainable Information and Communications Technology solutions and visualizing methods in the fight against corruption.
