ASEDIE (La Asociación Multisectorial de la Información), the Spanish independent association of re-users of (open) data, is organising the ASEDIE Award 2017. For the first time, ASEDIE has opened the possibility of proposing nominations of persons, companies or institutions that support, in one way or another, the Infomediary Sector (with opening data, transparency, reuse ...). The competition is open to candidates inside and outside Spain.
ASEDIE promotes awareness on the importance of Open Data, and highlights the economic and societal benefits it brings. The ASEDIE award is awarded annually. Its purpose is to emphasize the importance of information and data in both the Spanish and the global economy.
