Obesity data challenge calls innovators to bid for new £30k prize

A £30,000 international challenge prize – the first of its kind – is up for grabs to innovators or organisations who can present obesity data in a new way.

The challenge, to promote innovation in open data, is being carried out in both England and the US and will either help create an innovative tool by “mashing up” existing data or will help publish data collected but not publicly available.

The aim is to create an app or interesting set of graphics to help patients make healthier choices.
