Biggest open data event in the world


Second annual Open Government Data Camp held in Warsaw (20.-21.10.2011) proved to be a great occasion for networking and sharing ideas with like-minded people.

Hosted by the Open Knowledge Foundation, the biggest open data event in the world gathered participants from over 40 different countries to discuss and attend a variety of workshops on topical issues. The Finnish Institute in London was one of the event's partner organisations. The number of Finnish participants in the event had more than doubled from last year, which suggests a significant increase in interest and enthusiasm in the open knowledge movement in Finland.

According to many discussions and speeches at the conference, it is essential that open data principles become effectively embedded into everyday policymaking and data management systems. This is also closely related to the Finnish Institute's project on the applicability of open data.
