IODC is the essential meeting point for the global community to debate and study the future of open data.
IODC aims to build stronger relationships between open data initiatives from the different governments and establish a dialogue between these voices:
- Policymakers and Public Sector Information (PSI) holders
- Private companies, startups, and freelancers
- Activists and NGO’s
- Data journalism
- Representatives of civil society from all over the world.
The differentiating nature of the event is that it gathers countries from the northern and southern hemispheres to define tendencies and establish global policies of collaboration, with the objective of stimulating the progress of open data globally.
