Under its motto 'Data for Happiness and Well-being,' the UAE Hackathon aims to develop innovative solutions and ideas that contribute to the happiness index of the many communities in the UAE. These solutions and ideas will be derived from the data that exist within and among government entities.
The wise leadership of the UAE places community happiness and well-being at the forefront of its objectives, which are embodied in the government's strategies and plans. Data is the foundation by which these strategies and plans were developed.
