Is open data capable of improving political decision making and governance?
Open policy making follows the approach to refine collaborative, evidence-based politics, through applying open data and information technologies. Decision making can become more accurate, transparent and comprehensible.
On the 10th of November 2016 an open discussion was realised at the Fraunhofer institute FOKUS in Berlin. The European research project Policy Compass and invited speakers from prominent research projects and organisations addressed the workshop to modern policy-makers, SMEs, data journalists and research institutions working on this topic.
More than 35 stakeholders debated with us about how we can shape politics and policy making more efficient and transparent through open data and IT technologies.
All presentations will be made available online in the following days! Stay tuned!
