The Open Data Institute aims to catalyse the evolution of an open data culture to create economic, environmental, and social value. To unlock supply, generate demand, create and disseminate knowledge to address local and global issues. We convene world-class experts to collaborate, incubate, nurture and mentor new ideas, and promote innovation. We will enable anyone to learn and engage with open data, and empower our teams to help others through professional coaching and mentoring.
At the ISA Committee meeting of the 15th of December 2015, EU Member States endorsed DCAT Application Profile for Data Portals in Europe (DCAT-AP) version 1.1, released on the 3rd of November 2015. The specification is intended for uniformly describing public sector datasets in Europe to enable cross-data portal search for data sets, making public sector data better searchable across borders and sectors.
Based on 16 recommendations, efforts should be made to achieve the following goal:
By 2025, all scholarly publication activity in Austria should be Open Access. In other words, the final versions of all scholarly publications resulting from the support of public resources must be freely accessible on the Internet without delay (Gold Open Access). The resources required to meet this obligation shall be provided to the authors, or the cost of the publication venues shall be borne directly by the research organisations.
Open Data — data that is freely available online for anyone to use and republish for any purpose — is becoming increasingly important in today’s development agenda driven by the Data Revolution, which has been recognized worldwide as the key engine for achieving the post-2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Data is probably one of the most valuable and least-utilized assets of modern governments. In that context, Open Data is being widely recognized as a resource with high economic and social value and as an effective approach for smarter data management. The primary purpose of Open Data initiatives worldwide is to help governments, businesses and civil society organizations utilize the already available digital data more effectively to drive sustainable development. Many Open Data initiatives involve taking data that is already publicly available and putting it into more usable formats, making it a powerful resource for private sector development, jobs creation, economic growth, and more effective governance and citizen engagement. In recent years, several studies — including those led by the World Bank — have shown a growing number of Open Data applications around the world, from water management social enterprises in India to agro-businesses in Ghana. The Open Data Impact Map, developed as part of the OD4D (Open Data for Development) network, has more than 1,000 examples of such use cases from over 75 countries, and the list is growing.
The FOSTER portal is an e-learning platform that brings together the best training resources for those who need to know more about Open Science, or who need to develop strategies and skills for implementing Open Science practices in their daily workflows. Here you will find a growing collection of training materials to meet the needs of many different users, from early-career researchers, to data managers, librarians, funders, and graduate schools.
Open data is gaining more importance these days. Yet, a lot of young people don’t know what open data is, or how they can benefit from it. That’s where Datawijs comes in. It’s an interactive video series, that introduces teenagers and young adults to the concept of open data. The Belgian platform works with Klynt, which allows the young people to view the videos in the order they want to. Thanks to the non-linear structure, users can learn on their own pace, about what interests them at whatever time they have.
In this session we aim to bring together key actors with different perspectives to shape the future of Citizen Science in Europe, providing community-based evidence to policy actors and selecting key roadmapping options.
The benefits of open access are widely accepted by the research community. However, there is still a ways to go towards making science open and harnessing the full potential of data-driven research. Data should be considered valuable research outputs that should be shared publicly and cited in the same way as journal articles. As funding agencies and publishers introduce data sharing policies, libraries and librarians are prepared to lend their expertise to assist researchers in managing their research data.
Open discussion on new funders’ requirements for sharing research data, whether Open Science and sharing research data can benefit society, and help move science forward? and if Open Data is a waste of time and money?
A new data age is sweeping the nation. In February 2015, the White House hired the first-ever U.S. Chief Data Scientist, D.J. Patil, announcing that “the data age has arrived.” This accelerates Federal agency efforts to unleash the power of government data by making it available to everyone, as a strategic national asset for entrepreneurship and economic development, belonging to all American citizens because taxpayers paid to create these data. Similar initiatives are underway at international, state, and local government scales.
