Open Data Armenia Contest
Armenia's first open data-based project contest starts on December 25, 2023.

Promoting the concept of "open data" (Open Data) contributes to the wide dissemination, free access, and use of data of high public value. Open Data is commonly used across various fields, such as science, public administration, business, education, and civil society. They promote transparency, innovation, and technology.

This contest pays special attention to the open cultural data in strengthening cultural identity, education, and society's development. Armenia has a rich cultural heritage and a variety of data that can become the basis for creating unique technological and educational projects.

We invite authors of projects based on a variety of data sources, including open government resources, data on the history, culture, and art of Armenia, data on the economy, and other spheres.

The contest may be of interest for developers, data researchers and analysts, digital humanities specialists, data journalists, and other engaged specialists and students.

We hope this contest will encourage the formation of a community of developers and researchers, thereby increasing the value of open data in Armenia.
