Effective Open Data: User-centered, Joined-up and Interoperable

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will draw on the insights of both the Open Data Charter’s “Open Data for Agriculture” project and the Initiative for Open Agriculture Funding. Between them, these two projects seek to define user needs, improve data interoperability,  and refine agricultural funding data standards. The session will also look at some of the tensions between openness and ownership as GODAN launches two new papers on issues of data rights and responsibilities, ownership and governance.
