EU Open Data Days 2021
November 23 - November 25
Take part in EU Open Data Days, an event focused on the benefits of open data and its reuse in the EU!
The Publications Office of the European Union is organising the first EU Open Data Days. This unique online event will serve as a knowledge hub, bringing the benefits of open data and its reuse to the EU public sector, and through it to people and businesses. Get inspired and discover the latest trends and most innovative solutions!
Data is a key asset for digital transformation. It is a building material for research and innovation, personalised products and services, powerful new technologies and better decision-making. These translate into solutions to societal challenges that can improve and even save people’s lives, as the current pandemic demonstrates. Open data is also freely available to generate value through reuse.

The EU Open Data Days organising team are looking for speakers to help shape a highly relevant conference programme. Are you an expert on open data and/or data visualisation?

Submit your proposal for a conference contribution by 21 May 2021 here.
