Map of ODDC Project Locations

In 2013, the World Wide Web Foundation launched the “Open Data in Developing Countries” research project. The goal? To learn key lessons from open data projects underway in developing countries and to deepen understanding of how open data can best be harnessed to deliver life-enhancing benefits to citizens across the world.

Researchers from the ODDC network have now completed 17 independent case studies across 14 countries, looking at open data in areas from urban governance to budget transparency, higher-education and extractives. 

You are invited to join us for this afternoon event before the main Open Knowledge Festival to hear about findings emerging from the project, and to discuss how to turn research into action that can improve future open data initiatives across the world.

The event will include a mix of presentations, debate and opportunities for informal discussion - as well as space to hear about other a wide range of open data research and action projects taking place focused on development.


  • This is a Fringe Event to the Open Knowledge Festival. However, you do not need an OKFest ticket to attend. 
  • Members of the ODDC project will also be leading a session during the main Open Knowledge Festival Programme.
  • The main OKFest programme begins at 6pm on Tuesday 15th, so we will ensure this event ends on time to allow you to travel across the city (a short metro ride) to join the main OKFest launch (we'll all be heading  there too!)


The funding for this work has been provided through the World Wide Web Foundation 'Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in Developing Countries' research project, supported by grant 107075 from Canada’s International Development Research Centre ( Find out more at
