SDG Hackathon

Visualizing Swiss Sustainability Research

SDG Hackathon

The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include economic, social, and environmental topics to prioritize until 2030. Following the Millennium Development Goals primarily aimed at developing countries, the SDGs were introduced in 2016 to both include more broad topics and address all nations.

Research in Switzerland
Switzerland is highly active in a multitude of research areas. Projects funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation are recorded in a publicly accessible database including a description of each project. We used the R package text2sdg to analyze these research projects to produce a unique dataset on research efforts in Switzerland to address the Sustainable Development Goals.

Data Visualization
We are eager to learn what information you can extract from the data. The SDG Hackathon asks you to use data visualization methods of your choice to produce insights on how the Swiss research landscape addresses the 17 SDGs. Learn from experts in the field, and use your skills and creativity to tell a visual data story.
