Open Knowledge Edinburgh meet-up #17

The meetup will be in the Glassroom at the Merchiston Campus of Edinburgh Napier University.

Open Knowledge Meet-ups are friendly and informal evenings for people to get together to share and argue all areas of openness. Come and join discussions around open knowledge and open data – from politics and philosophy to practicalities of theory and practice.
