On 20 and 21 November 2017, the first Nordic Open Data Forum event will take place in Stockholm (Sweden). Open Data has quickly become an important topic and is a key component when building the digital economy of the future. The synergies between the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) are numerous. It is time to harness the potential of these synergies for the field of Open Data as well.
The Open Data Forum aims to do so, with sessions on mobility data in the Nordics, Open Data principles for cities and Open Data journalism that are expected to further stimulate progress and cross-border cooperation in the respective fields. The conference is organised by the Internet Foundation In Sweden (IIS).
