The new data science course at UiO/ ISS had many applicants. The students came from a broad specter of subject areas, and they collaborated with five different stakeholders.

The five stakeholders had five diverse cases to be resolved by the Hackathon students. The stakeholders were:

  • Norad
  • OPX
  • The United Nations Association of Norway (FN-sambandet),
  • Statistics Norway
  • The Office of the Auditor General monitors the public sector (Riksrevisjonen)
