EU Open Data Days

Data is a key asset for digital transformation. It is a building material for research and innovation, personalised products and services, powerful new technologies and better decision-making. The EU Open Data Days, planned for 23 -25 november 2021, aim to increase awareness of this valuable asset, to explore its potential and to generate more value from it, on the way towards a European data-driven economy.

These translate into solutions to societal challenges that can improve and even save people’s lives, as the current pandemic demonstrates. Open data is also freely available to generate value through reuse.

The event will bring together EU and international experts, high-profile speakers and enthusiasts, to exchange ideas, discuss successful examples and network.  

The EU Open Data Days comprise of: 

  • EU DataViz 2021 addresses the needs of the EU’s public sector engaged in open data and data visualisation. It provides a platform to explore the latest trends in open data and data visualisation – a crucial tool to explore and explain complex information in a meaningful way. 
  • EU Datathon allows the tech community to put into practice the open data produced by the EU institutions, agencies and bodies and to showcase its value. Previous editions of EU Datathon have shown that the potential of open data, combined with talent and creativity, is limitless.

The EU Open Data Days have a particular focus on the EU’s public sector and data enthusiasts. They are also relevant for policymakers, researchers, academia, private entities, students and citizens interested in the power of open data as a factor determining our future.
