This research and development work aims to explore the requirements and pain points in current data publishing tools, and to offer new solutions to meet those needs through open source prototypes.

Through our research, we are building on the knowledge and success of the ODI’s Octopub publishing tool which allows anyone to publish data quickly on GitHub, along with other existing data publishing tools.

This work is part of a three-year innovation programme, running to March 2020 with a funding profile of £2m each year from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.

The work is helping the UK to build on its established strengths in data and data analytics, breaking new ground in creating value from data, and helping to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of data innovation globally.
