Yes, but please let me know specifically what you are looking for and what you hope to achieve.
We are trying to arrange a research trip to England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland around late Mars and early April 2017 to study about open data, its role in government, new start-ups, ways to open government data, attempt to encourage governmental and non-governmental organisations to open their data and same other subjects.
We’ll use a method and some compiled list of questions (which we are preparing) trying to use this trip’s results spreading open data in our own country.
This is why we need a list of these institutions which we should study about. After preparing it, we will also try to find some of them which are more probable to answer our questions and help us to promote open data in Iran. So we can connect with them to know each other better or even have a meeting among that trip.
So, with this approach, we wonder if you know some specific organisations and institutions to introduce or link us with.
We hope that we can share our travel’s results as an article with researchers and policy makers in our country. Besides, we collect some articles about England’s situation to read.
If there is any question, please feel free to ask. it’s a pleasure for us to answer.
I am not aware of such a list, but it may well be that someone more connected with the England open government organisations might be. @Mor should know, or know who knows.
@Mor (sorry for lots of mentioning you!) is one of the people we asked her for help and she magnanimously helped us just as always. Surely we will keep in touch with her for the last coordinates.
The following is a bit out of date, but most of the open data organisations in Scotland are on this list:
Thank you for the list you have introduced.
Note that open data is regarded as a devolved matter with respect to Scottish Government. I think it’s fair to say that in general, open data initiatives started by the UK government are more advanced, and much better resourced, than those in Scotland.
Thank you for mentioning the differences between England and Scotland’s situations. It’s in our schedule to zoom on England but if we find a better case in other sides of Britain we’ll use their knowledge and experiences for sure, too.
