Data science ghent was lucky enough to get the support of a few institutes and companies to help organise this hackathon.

Universiteit Gent

Universiteit Gent and more particularly, the astronomy department, helped shaping and creating the hackathon. Not only do we want a hackathon with the right level of challenge but the results and outcome should be scientifically relevant.


The people from Datatonic provided support in teaching participants how to work with Tensorflow and create a hackathon that is a perfect test case to show their skills.

Vlaamse supercomputer centrum

The flemish supercomputer center provides computational and technical support. This is a key component in creating a challenging hackathon where people can work without limiting themselves to much when it comes to processing time.
