WHO WE ARE
Hack for Sweden is a government mission raised to increase the awareness and use of open data. Our focus and goal is to stimulate and broaden the use of open data for the benefit of society. We also organize Sweden's largest yearly hackaton organized by government agencies, the hackaton of 2018 is the fifth since the beginning in 2014. The main responsibility has rotated each year between the agencies, this year Arbetsförmedlingen (Swedish Employement Service) was the head organizer. Previous agencies have been SMHI, Tillväxtverket, Naturvårdsverket and Sveriges Geologiska Undersökning, SGU.
