Open Knowledge Edinburgh meet-up #23

The Institute for Informatics and Digital Innovation at Napier University is generously hosting our March 2017 meet-up.

Lightning talks:

  • Ewan McAndrew: Wikidata: the new Rosetta Stone
  • Lorna Campbell: Accessing Open Research Outputs MOOC — a new course from the University of Edinburgh
  • Daniel Patterson: Modelling bike ridership using crowdsourced and automatic bike count data
  • Ingi Helgason: The MAZI Project
  • Doreen Grove: The Open Government Scotland Action Plan — where we are and where we could go!
  • Ruchir Shah: The OGP as a route for civil society to achieve UN Sustainability Goals

This meet-up is part of a broader effort to effort to grow a community around Edinburgh Open Government and to explore overlaps with Open Knowledge.

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.
