ODI Fridays are free lunchtime lectures for everyone. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.
Mike Rose has been working with the ODI and CABI to help the Ethiopian Government develop and implement a Soil and Agronomy data sharing policy. This talk is looking at how they approached this, how they ensured that they got as much buy in as possible and how they developed a policy – that landed well – based on the principles of FAIR data (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable).
Mike will also discuss his hypothesis that open data as an outcome is dead and we need to refocus how we approach open data going forwards.
