We’re happy to announce that on 21st of April, 2015 we’ll be organising and sponsoring an event about local open data at MOSI, the Museum of Science and Industry, in Manchester. The event will be relevant to open data from all over the UK.

We’re currently putting together the programme but we’ll have some great speakers from throughout the country talking about their practical experiences of publishing and applying open data in a local context; how they use open data to create new services and how open data can provide evidence for decision making and engaging with citizens.

More details to come but, in the meantime, please save the date: 21st April and sign up to the event’s mailing list. We’ll email you with an update when there’s more info.
