The ReSAKSS Data Challenge is a competition for enthusiastic data users to showcase their creativity and analytical skills using data and other resources on the ReSAKSS website to develop an innovative knowledge product or project that addresses a development challenge faced by Africa.

The ReSAKSS challenge is an Africa wide -diaspora included- competition targeting researchers, students, creative designers, developers and analysts and anyone passionate about data. The competition will enable you to experiment, discover new tools, and create a community of practice working data in the most innovative way.

It will enable various groups of actors, whether in business, the media, or arts, civil society organizations to create content in their own line of occupation. More generally, the challenge encourages diverse communities with different backgrounds to come together to use data to generate knowledge, discuss and exchange on the common interest for data.

The ReSAKSS Data Challenge edition 2019 was launched officially on December 15th, 2018 and will be open until June 30th, 2019. Applications will be made through this dedicated ReSAKSS Challenge website.
