In 2018 the Data Prize will be awarded in three categories: 1) humanities and social sciences, 2) exactand technical sciences and 3) medical and life sciences. Curious for the previous Data Prize winners?
The winners receive a sculpture and €5,000 to make their data set (more) accessible, (for instance by organising a symposium or disclosing the data online).
