The Government of Taiwan created the Presidential Hackathon to promote innovative use of data for social good. Through this event, the government intends to facilitate data exchange and collaboration between data holders and data scientists in order to benefit the public. In 2019, the challenge was made open to international participants. In 2019, the participants are prompted with the question of "how can (open) data help enable the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?"
