Once again UniSA will be the city venue for GovHack, a series of weekend long hackathons held simultaneous across Australia and New Zealand. Over one weekend (28-30 July 2017), teams use Open Data that has been made available by the government to showcase how we can create innovative services for South Australians. Hosted by our Innovation & Collaboration Centre, the competition draws participants from a cross section of the community and provides a unique student experience on campus, while supporting and contributing to the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
