Hack for Sweden is a competition with the aim of meeting societal challenges through digital innovation. SLU has been an active participant in Hack for Sweden from the beginning!

Hack for Sweden is an innovation competition with the aim of meeting societal challenges by using open data digitally. The aim is to promote the use of open data through collaboration between public administration and, for example, business and industry, civil society and higher education institutions.

The project is based on a mandate given by the Swedish government and is run by the Agency for Digital Government (DIGG). This year, the project group is developing and testing a new concept for the competition. The SLU representative is Sabina Lundberg from the SLU University Library.

Do you have questions about the project, do you want to participate in the competition or act as a mentor for the participants? Contact Sabina (
