A successful datathon was held in Tartu (Estonia) the second weekend of November 2017.
The topic of the datathon was the analysis of the impact of public investment subsidies on enterprise performance and their network structure in Estonia during 2011–2016.
There have been 220 participants, 12 teams and 18 mentors from all around Europe!
The analysis used micro-level data on enterprise VAT and payroll declarations from Estonian Tax and Customs Board, including unique data on sales between enterprises. The tax data have been combined with data on investment subsidies from Estonian Agricultural Registers and Information Board.
