The Water Hub Hackaton (UK)
Within the scope of Topsoil, Martin Colling from the Wear Rivers Trust provided an overview of how the Trust collects and collates data and some of the major issues in obtaining it. Local IT/tech companies then had 24 hours to develop and present on their innovative solutions to the problem.
The overall goal of the event was to highlight issues with data sharing within the UK
The event was organized by the Water Hub and took place on the 14th of March 2018 in Sunderland. The Water Hub is a collaboration between Northumbrian Water, the Environment Agency and Durham University.
