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.

The State of Open Data – Histories and Horizons is a new book that provides a review of the first 10 years of open data. Join Mor Rubinstein, Tim Davies and Carla Bonina to discover insights gained and the challenges still to be overcome as open data enters its second decade

The book brings together over 65 authors from around the world to examine open data from historial, sectoral, and regional perspectives, uncovering the issues that will shape the future of open data in the years to come.
