Changes in education acts, urban development trends or statistics on fine dust pollution: More and more information is available freely as open data nowadays. At our Open Data Brunch you learn where to find open data and how it is used in social projects.
We will look at open data from the social, legal and technical perspectives: How can data contribute to transparency and political accountability? How can is help to promote greater participation? Which data formats are available and what exactly is "machine-readable"? What rights (and obligations) apply to organizations that want to make their data freely accessible? We will introduce you to various practical projects based on open data. Also there will be time to try out and get familiar with digital tools that can support research and monitoring activities.
