Open Data Institute - Unearthing data institutions
Access to the right data is vital in tackling the big challenges we face - from the earlier detection and treatment of disease to reducing pollution in urban spaces.
Data institutions are organisations that steward data on behalf of others, often towards public, educational or charitable aims, and already exist across the private, public and third sectors. They take many forms and do a number of different things in practice.
At the ODI, we’re conscious that are further examples of impactful data institutions worldwide that we are yet to come across. In this session, we would like the MozFest community to help us crowdsource data institutions, and discuss the role they play and the lessons we can learn from them.
We’ll use collaborative editing tools to document and annotate the examples, and publish it openly to ensure others can engage and contribute.
