The EU Publications Office is organising the first “EU Open Data Days” online event between 23 to 25 November 2021. The event will consist on open data and data visualisation ‘EU DataViz 2021’ and the annual open data competition ‘EUdatathon’. It will gather experts of open data, share latest trends and will focus on access to public data in particular on topics related to the Commission’s priority – green, digital and economy.

 

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. 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. 

 

This unique online event will serve as a knowledge hub, bringing the benefits of open data and its reuse to the EU public sector, and through it to people and businesses. Get inspired and discover the latest trends and most innovative solutions!

 

The event is open to applicants from the Western Balkans.
