A new type of Open Data event

In Zagreb, Croatia and ONLINE

December, 7th, 2022

Location TBA

Open-data is a great source of raw information, yet too often organizations consider it as a chore that is only done because of regulatory compliance.

Why not use the open-data published to gain insights into the data integrity / quality of that data?

Would the world not be a better place if we all just took a bit more interest in our open-data?

The organizers behind OpenDataConnected think so. We want to try something different from other open-data related hackathons and events.

  • OpenDataConnected is not going to develop an app during the conference
  • OpenDataConnected is going to analyze the quality of existing open data and work on improving that
  • OpenDataConnected is about finding solutions to open data quality sustainability

If this sounds like a good idea, join us on the 7th of December in Zagreb and Online!
