Dear Open Data People,
You may have heard of several EU initiatives about open data such as :
- Open data portal which you can find at http://data.europa.eu/
- Hackathons and app competitions like the Diplohack and TransparencyCampEU
- Winter school ‘[Using European Data for better storytelling]((http://epp.cor.europa.eu/events/winter-university/winter-university-using-european-data-for-better-storytelling)’
It seems like the EU open data scene is on the move. With some top-down initiatives in place, it will benefit hugely from your ideas. Please reply to this topic if you have abstract or specific ideas on how to mobilize various interest groups to become active (re)users of the European open data.
Meanwhile we are trying to create a regular communication channel with the official EU open data people.
Join the dialogue!
