Open Data

Open data is becoming an essential ingredient to addressing modern societal challenges.

  • It drives transparency and is increasingly important to inform policy making.
  • It supports fairness, democratic engagement and participation.
  • It provides opportunities to generate social, economic and cultural value.

Open data is published by organisations, businesses and individuals and is licensed for anyone to access, re-use and share without restrictions, except perhaps to acknowledge the source.

Publishing and licensing data for unrestricted access and re-use is what makes data open.

Anyone with data can open it up to support an open culture and ecosystem, and in doing so make society Better With Data. Talk to us or join one of our events if you want to find out how.
