Open Belgium is an initiative to make Belgian knowledge open, usable, used, useful. The annual event gathers industry, research, government, and citizen stakeholders to look and the state of Open Data and gain insights on focus topics like linked chatbots or different industries such as biotech, tourisms, manufacturing, architecture, etc. It is a one-day community driven conference with talks, discussions, panels, workshops and showcasing best practices.
