Open government data is a topic that sparks a lot of discussions these days. The public starts to demand open data and a variety of municipalities, non-governmental organizations, and public sector bodies begin to respond by providing their data. However, in general, in Czech Republic there is a lack of awareness and low understanding of what open data are and what are the principles and benefits of open data.
The aim of Open Data and Public Sector: applying Austrian experience in Czech Republic is to introduce the open data phenomenon by sharing practical experience from Austria, where the open data principles are applied systematically on the level of both municipalities and federal government. Complementing the Austrian side, the ongoing open data activities in Czech Republic will by presented. The meeting should serve as a forum for exchanging know-how, searching for opportunities of further development of open data in Czech Republic, and for starting cooperation with the Austrian representatives.
The event is targetted mainly at the politicians and public servants that want the public sector to be transparent and open towards the citizens.
