Friday lunchtime lecture: What does a good data market look like?

Friday 29 April 2016, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Shoreditch, London

Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.


Is it time to move beyond shop window displays in open data portals and embrace data market places? What does a good data market place look like?

Making data more discoverable, accessible and usable is a goal shared by government, businesses, sectors and non profits. How do we realise maximum value of the web of data? What kind of data infrastructure do we need for the discovery, collaboration on and exchanges of data?

Join us for a thought debate about how we access, use and share data across organisations to maximise the value of the web of data. Speakers include Eddie Copeland, Director of Strategy at Nesta; Leigh Dodds, Chair of Bath: Hacked and ODI Associate; and Yodit Stanton, founder of Open Sensors.

About our Friday lunchtime lectures

With a broad range of topics in open data such as tracking government expenditure, British landscape mapping and creating art, there’s bound to be something that interests you.

The sessions run from 1pm to 1.45pm weekly during UK school term-times, with informal networking until 2pm. Each lecture lasts for around 20 minutes, leaving time for questions afterwards. The lectures don’t require any specialist knowledge, but are focused around communicating the meaning and impact of open data in all areas of life.

Each week the lectures are streamed live on YouTube and then uploaded to our YouTube and Vimeo channels. You can also download the Friday lunchtime lectures as a podcast on iTunes.

You can follow the lectures and contribute to the discussion using #ODIFridays on Twitter
