Building up a more open and collaborative society is a Herculean task. But when started reasonably and diversely, it is achievable. Our priority projects revolve around:

  • opening up governance: we believe that the process through which a place is ruled has to be more transparent and participatory. We thus like to address stuff like procurement, financial transparency and policy-making that enable citizen participation;
  • opening up data: we believe that all the data and information produced by public administrations in the process of their work must be made freely and openly available for anyone to access, (re)use, share and modify;
  • opening up knowledge: we all produce it, but it increasingly gets enclosed behind copyright, paywalls and suchlikes. We thus aim to inform as many people as possible about the dangers behind locking up scientific and cultural knowledge. In addition, we thrive to produce open and shareable knowledge that is both of scientific and social relevance.

Community building and sharing #datalove are a must-do: get involved!
