two European transparency events organized by Open State Foundation http://openstate.eu:
an App Competition and TransparencyCamp Europe 2016
The coming month European developers can take part in the TransparencyCamp App Competition. This competition challenges European developers to build apps that make innovative use of EU open data or open up the black box of EU decision-making. Deadline for submission is May 1. Winning the App Competition will get you to the Transparency Camp in Washington DC, the 2nd and 3d price will be rewarded with a special transparency trip to Brussels. In Brussels you will get a tour of the European Parliament and get the chance to pitch your app for a select group of data managers of European institutions. The winners will be announced on June 1 at the very first Transparency Camp Europe in Amsterdam.
Would you like to work with at least one European dataset and do you think you can build a creative app that will make Europe more accountable, interactive and transparent? If so, you should definitely join the App Competition. We are looking forward to your submissions, as we know that innovation is only achieved when many creative people use their imagination and expertise to make this world more open and transparent!

TransparencyCamp Europe– https://transparencycamp.eu/
On 1 June 2016 Open State Foundation and the Presidency of the Council of the European Union will host the very first TransparencyCamp Europe in Amsterdam.
We are pleased to invite you to share your experiences and knowledge about open data, new technologies and policies that make the EU work for people, stimulates open government and helps people grasp the workings of the various EU institutions.
This will be the first TransparencyCamp Europe, but not the first in the world. Since 2009, transparency camps have been organised in the United States by Sunlight Foundation, leaving thousands of participants energised, full of ideas, and flush with new contacts and networks.
