TransparencyCamp Europe

13 Apr

The Open State Foundation together with the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union, launch a series of events: an online European-wide open data app competition, hackathons in a number of European capitals and TransparencyCamp Europe, an unconference for open government which will take place on 1 June 2016 in Amsterdam.

In the run up to TransparencyCamp Europe, an online app competition has been launched to make EU decision-making more accessible to Europeans. As greater amounts of machine-readable government data becomes available, government information needs to become more usable and understandable. Developers are the key to this transformation, as they can create creative apps that allow the public to benefit from all the available governmental data. The App Competition for more accessible data has already begun. Everybody can submit their app here. The deadline for app submission is 6th May.

FromOverHere supports the Dutch EU presidency’s drive to open up decision-making and getting input and hopes that this is an ongoing trend.
