About the Project

In 2014, the OGP Open Data Working Group launched a call for proposals for exploring the technical and practical implications of Open Data. From around 80 applicants, the following were selected:

–Open North Inc. (Canada): “Recommended standards and best practices for open data”

–Mitrovic Development & Research Institute (South Africa): “Building open data capacity through e-skills acquisition

Step Up Consulting (The Philippines): “Enhancing citizen engagement with open government data”

–Mark Frank (United Kingdom): “User centred methods for measuring the value of open data”

–Sunlight Foundation (United States): “The social impact of open data in the global south”

This website documents the journey of the team in answering the research questions that it asked when it submitted its proposal.
