Open data workshop on global definitions and regional understanding

Open data is growing in attention on a global scale. There exist different definitions of the term open data. According to The Open Definition (n.d.), “Open data and content can be freely used, modified, and shared by anyone for any purpose.” This definition refers to different types of data like data of cultural works and artefacts, scientific data and publications, financial data and governmental expenditure, statistics and census data, weather and climate data, as well as environmental data like data on pollution or the quality of water and air.

At the “Open Southeast Asia” in Bonn, the European Chapter has held an own workshop with the goal to bring together people with Western and with Asian backgrounds together and to share ideas and best practice examples about how to deal with open data.
