Open Belgium will host several keynote speeches about Open Data by policy makers in Flanders, Wallonia and Belgium. Break-out rooms will also host various workshops on specifi c subjects such as Open Transport in Belgium, Open Street Map in Belgium, the use of creative commons licenses, and the Belgian datasets that are most wanted to be opened up next.
Citadel on the Move presents an Open forum to policy makers and influencers alike to discuss the future of Open Data in Europe. The first results of the project that allows cities to publish their data in a way they can easily be used in a mobile app will be demonstrated. And the winners of the Hackaton come on stage to show their apps.
Open Data is a global phenomenon. Its true implications only become apparent when looking across border, across continents. The Data Days provide a platform for experts and enthusiasts from all over the world to get in touch, share experiences and exchange strategies so that Open Data may shape the future for all of us. Key topics will include interoperability of Open Data between European cities and regions, Open Data licensing and business models.
To promote the exciting innovation possibilities made available through Open Data, DataDays are launching three new Hackathon competitions!
