About the event:
"The benefits of Open Data are diverse and range from improved efficiency of public administrations, economic growth in the private sector to wider social welfare." - European Data Portal
Recent years have seen an increased focus on Open Data. This has raised the expectations placed on producers of statistics and offered new opportunities for those who consume data. So, how far have we progressed and what has been the impact on producers and consumers of data?
This event, hosted by the RSS South Wales Local Group, will consist of four short presentations followed by a panel led discussion. There will be an opportunity for networking following the talks, and light refreshments will be provided.
Professor Tom Crick, Swansea University, School of Education
