Let's make Belgian knowledge open, usable, used and useful

Open Belgium is an annual Open Knowledge and Open Data conference gathering industry, research, government and citizen stakeholders. We invite you to experience this one-day community-driven event and get inspired by engaging panel discussions, hands-on and minds-on workshops as well as the interactive exhibition space where a multitude of partners present recent innovative products, services and research.

This year's theme is: "Open Communities, Smart Society", marking the different ways open knowledge and open data can contribute to active citizenship and the holistic impact it has on our digital ecosystem. Via information sharing, transparent sources and open content, attendees shall be inspired to actively engage in smart urban development, innovative social applications and enhance participation in the new open era.

Following up on previous Open Belgium editions this time we are aiming to answer questions regarding progress and challenges in opening up data, to hear different perspectives on availability and demand from a wide range of participants and, last but not least, highlight current trends in the open data scene.

If this sparked your interest, join us on the 12th of March in Louvain-la-Neuve and become part of the open community!
