workshop 3: Citizens and Open Data


Day 1: 15h00-16h30



In this workshop we invite future and action oriented discussion by summing up and presenting main learnings and outcomes of the Open4Citizens project, that has run through 2016-2018 in five European locations; exploring how best to empower citizens to make sense of open data. In the workshop we aim to cross-examine our insights and the tools/strategies developed in a diverse discussion across design practice, data expertise, digital innovation and open data advancement.
