'Opening Up Government Data' Conference in Galway
The institute where I work- the Digital Enterprise Research Institute is hosting a major eGovernment conference on November 8th entitled Opening Up Government Data.
This very important citizens empowering event is being held as part of Irish Open Data Week with the aim of highlighting the benefits of Open Data to public authorities, businesses, community organisations and individual citizens through a conference based on open, facilitated discussions and hands-on sessions.
Attendees will include officials from many local authorities across Ireland as well as representatives from the political, academic, community, media, corporate and small business sectors.
Hopefully community activists and NGOs attend in large numbers
