Data will play a key role in our future. Sometimes called ‘the new oil’, they form a basis for research and innovation and for the development of new products, services and powerful technologies. Innovations arising from open data will improve our lives and boost economic growth.
Would you like to contribute to the shift to a data-driven economy? This is your chance! The Publications Office of the European Union is organising the EU Open Data Days that will take place from 23 to 25 November 2021. This event will give you a unique opportunity to meet the open data community, share experience with experts in the field and explore successful data-driven projects.
This fully online event will start with EU DataViz 2021, a conference on open data and data visualisation, on 23 and 24 November. It will close with the finale of EU Datathon, the annual open data competition, on 25 November.
