Winners of the 2016 EUhackathon: Visualising Copyright Evidence

20 November 2016


EUhackathon winners of the visualising copyright evidence challenge receive 5.000 (1st Prize), 2.000 (2nd Prize) and 1.000 (3rd Prize) Euro at the European Parliament

After almost 30 hours of intense coding, it was time for our 32 coders from 14 nationalities to hear from the jury who had won the first prize for the challenge they had taken on only one day before, namely visualising copyright evidence. This was done in the European Parliament – prizes being notably handed over by Mr Christian Staat from the Cabinet of European Commisioner Oettinger, MEP Theresa Comodini Cachia (EPP, Malta), MEP Kaja Kallas (ALDE, Estonia), MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri (S&D, Finland), and MEP Anneleen Van Bossuyt (ECR, Belgium).

The winners of this 6th edition of the EUhackathon are:

Second Prize: Team TheTicks (Romania)
Third Prize: Roberts Dargis (Latvia)

First Prize

Team Fakenl (Brazil – Hungary)

Limited access to scientific articles often results in illegal downloading or requests for them on informal channels.

On this website you can find evidence for this phenomenon. The visualizations are based on the requested scientific papers on reddit and twitter. The investigated channels are the Scholar subreddit and the #icanhazpdf hashtag in particular.
