Friday lunchtime lecture: How open data can help charities and grant funders focus resources

Friday 11 September 2015, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street

Friday lunchtime lectures at the Open Data Institute.

You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

Grantmakers and charities generate large amounts of data through the course of their work. If this data could be shared and compared easily it could be useful to many other organisations, including other charities, NGOs and funders, enabling better use of resources by everyone.

Alice Casey from 360Giving and Tim Davies will explain how things work in practice and how people can get involved either as publishers, data users or contributors to the standard.

Tim Davies is an independent consultant & action-researcher based in Oxford, UK, and since October 2011, a PhD Student in Web Science and Social Policy with the University of Southampton.
