The government has recently launched two parallel consultations on policies that will shape the future of Open Data in UK:
- Making Open Data Real
- Public Data Corporation
We invite data developers, users, civil society groups to discuss the implications. The event will have an open space format, with a half hour intro and breaking up for one hour and reconvening. We want to propose 3 sessions around aspects of the consultations, but obviously participants may have more ideas on the day:
- Privacy, ICO, FOIA, legislation and governance (Caldicott guardians,
sector transparency boards...)
- Public services, privatisation and involvement of civil society
- PDC, pricing models and the open data ecosystem
When & Where
Open Rights Group
The digital age is transforming society: bringing us greater democracy, transparency and new creative possibilities. When these freedoms are under attack, the Open Rights Group is there to defend them. Founded in 2005 by 1,000 digital activists, ORG has become the UK’s leading voice defending freedom of expression, privacy, innovation, consumer rights and creativity on the net.
Getting into the political trenches in the UK and EU, we mobilise our supporters to stop bad laws. Working closely with other campaign groups, we lobby government and talk to the media whenever our rights are threatened.
ORG is a non-profit company funded by donors, mostly by people like you. We depend on regular contributions to run and win our campaigns.
