An Open Data Workshop will take place on Thurs 19th Feb to bring together publishers and users of Open Data.

Or maybe you just want to find out more about what Open Data is? All are welcome!

The aim of the Open Data Workshop is threefold:

b)      to foster a collaboration network between Open Data publishers and users, and

c)       to cultivate an Open Data ecosystem that prioritises high-quality, usableOpen Data.

In preparation for the Open Data Workshop, we are adding new datasets todata.gov.ie and improving the quality of those already there. Ideas for the roundtable-talks session, and data requests in advance of the workshop are welcome via email to opendata@per.gov.ie, via the Open Data Portal athttp://data.gov.ie/feedback or on the Open Data Ireland Google Grouphttps://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/open-data-ireland
