On October 22-24, 2019, Helsinki will gather leading developers and influencers of European spatial data infrastructures to take on the challenge to create the future of spatial data and services.

Join us in harvesting the 'Sea of European spatial data' to improve both decision-making and the daily life of everyone.

At the Inspire Helsinki 2019 event:

  • We look beyond the status quo to see what can be achieved with European spatial data now and in the future. 
  • We want to get the full potential of the latest technologies.
  • We bring together approximately 150 people to foster discussion and new ideas in data challenges.
  • We host practical hands-on workshops and outstanding keynote presentations in a modern venue.

Four Data Challenges

The Inspire Helsinki 2019 hosts challenges for practical uses of spatial data in the domains of sea, weather and built environment. They were selected from the proposals received for the call for challenges.

The challenge organisers and the partners will support the teams with data, tools and services, to ensure successful results. The hard deadline for the team sign up has been postponed to Sunday 8th September.  

Please note that since the challenge work will start already on the 1st September, we recommed to sign up as early as possible to avail of the full package of support from the organisers. 

The winners will be awarded at the Inspire Helsinki 2019 event in October.

Each challenge holds a webinar to present their challenge. The webinars are a great way to get a more in depth view on each challenge. See the about and awards & rules pages for more information.

Hands-on Workshops

The event will also have workshops aiming to boost the awareness of new technologies for the provision and use of e.g. API based spatial data and Internet of Things (IoT). Topics of the workshops are related to the data challenges.
