OPEN DATA: TRANSPARENCY WITH A PURPOSE

09:45-11:00 Pavilion 8, Conference Hall 8.2
The idea of the ‘Open Government’, which has evolved worldwide over the past decade, has become a cornerstone element of a strategy to offer greater access to government information and foster deeper interaction between agencies and citizens. Open data has proven to improve the transparency of state entities, provided an efficient tool for public monitoring of government operations, and opened up new services for the citizens and businesses. Just over a year ago Russia began a step-by-step process of making accessible relevant information. What is the impact of these initial efforts? How can the general public and business community capitalize on the move towards transparency?

Highlights

The real value of open data can only be exploited if we can connect the data from different sources.

Sören Auer
Professor, Coordinator of the pan-European LOD2 (Linked Open Data) project

As we see this convergence of big data and open data, we really see this huge growth with the potential for businesses to use their own private data combined with government data to be able to create economic growth.

Jeanne Holm

There is quite a lot of optimism about the way open data can create new services and businesses here in Russia.
