Making data open

Digital and Open Data event with Leaders for Leeds

Yesterday afternoon leaders for leeds network discussed – How can we make digital and open data open to everyone in our city?

Dylan Roberts, Chief Information Officer for Leeds City Council, hosted the session at the Open Data Institute at Munro House – a fabulous venue. We heard a series of thought provoking lightening presentations from –

  • Adam Beaumont – AQL
  • Alicia Ridout – University of Leeds
  • Abhay Adhikari – Leeds City Council
  • Paul Connell – ODI
  • Victoria Betton – mHealthHabitat

Emma Bearman rounded up the talks by sharing  evidence about how we might use the principle of generosity to open up data and digital and some great insights into how we might work more inclusively.

We then worked on answering the question: how can we make digital and open data open to everyone in our city? to help us make connections beyond the digital community so that leaders across Leeds can realise the value of digital for everyone.
