ODI Bristol joined the global network of ODI Nodes in the summer of 2015. The Bristol Node is run by a group of volunteers active in the field, with the support of Bristol Is Open and the City Innovation Team at Bristol City Council.
There are ODI Nodes all over the world, and we work closely with them and ODI HQ to share learning, innovations and inspiration. As a Community Node, our main focus is to continue to build and support an open data ecosystem for the City of Bristol.
The Open Data Institute (ODI) is catalysing the evolution of open data culture to create economic, environmental and social value. We help unlock supply, generate demand, create and disseminate knowledge to address local and global issues. We convene world class experts to collaborate, incubate, nurture new ideas, and promote innovation. We enable anyone to learn and engage with open data, and empower our teams to help others through professional coaching and mentoring.
Founded by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Professor Nigel Shadbolt in 2012, the ODI is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan, limited by guarantee company.
Become a member of ODI Bristol to connect and collaborate, boost your skills, get inspired, and to play your part in helping to promote a global, sustainable open data culture.
