Hackathon Objectives:

1) To organise a “Bring the data” workshop and to work on it together to support case-driven analysis aimed towards impact in the area of application and acceptance of alternatives-based evidence for read across, evidence-based and ab initio based risk assessment purposes;
2) To bring interdisciplinary expertise together to crowd-hack scientific and software solutions on advancing case study analysis needs, ideas and results;
3) To bring together different stakeholder perspectives related to OpenTox - research, application, innovation, industry and regulatory;
4) To brainstorm the potential for collaboration, infrastructure development and value creation around an OpenTox philosophy and harmonisation, quality and open standards goals.


The workshop will provide a) case studies, b) data, c) emphasis on time to work on cases and data analysis and discussion, d) a great atmosphere to develop ideas and relationships while solving problems together.
