247 proposals received for the EU Open Data Days!
From 23 – 25 November, the Publications Office of the European Union hosts the first-ever EU Open Data Days, the free online event to discuss and share best practices on open data and data visualisation.
Over the past few months, data enthusiasts have been submitting their proposals to participate in this event and contribute to shaping our digital future with open data. The call for proposals received a total of 247 submissions from 47 countries, from the United States to Australia, from the Russian Federation to Chile. More than half (60%) of the proposals came from the private sector, 14% from academia, and 13% from public administrations specifically, both at the national and regional level.
The EU Open Data Days proposals were split as follows:
- EU DataViz: the open data and data visualisation conference on 23 and 24 November received 151 proposals from 34 countries.
- EU Datathon: the open data competition on 25 November received 96 applications from 33 countries, both inside and outside the EU.
