From Europeana Blog:

Last week on Thurs­day and Fri­day we wel­comed the win­ners of the Euro­peanaT­ech Hackathon in Vienna who took part in a work­shop designed to move their prod­uct ideas fur­ther along the path to a ‘mar­ketable’ web­site or app.

The win­ners of the hackathon were the Euro­peana­Globe team (Anja Jentzsch, Ulrike Krabo, Ela­heh Momeni, Petr Pri­dal and Rainer Simon) who cre­ated a beau­ti­ful map-based search inter­face using only open search and browser based components.

In the work­shop they were rep­re­sented by Petr Pri­dal of Klokan Tech­nolo­gies and Rainer Simon of the Aus­trian Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy

Run­ners up were Diego Cec­ca­relli of CNR-ISTI  and Hugo Huur­de­man who cre­ated Seman­tic Search Short­cuts, a method of enhanc­ing the query sug­ges­tions by using log file analy­sis and seman­tic concepts.

The sec­ond run­ner up of the Vienna hackathon was unfor­tu­nately not able to attend. So fill­ing that slot on very short notice were Maarten Zein­stra of Ken­nis­land and Maarten Brinkerink of Insti­tuut voor Beeld en Geluid who worked on a Wiki­me­dia Upload facil­ity for gal­leries, libraries, archives and muse­ums, some­thing they had worked on at a pre­vi­ous Euro­peana Hackathon.
