Alexander Sander: Open Platforms for Open Data?

April 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0

FSFE has launched the campaign “Public Money, Public code”, which
promotes legislation requiring that publicly financed software developed
for the public sector is made publicly available under a Free and Open
Source Software licence. The demand to support free software is also
important for the open data debate. More and more administrations make
open data available, which is used by different actors in different
ways. However, these actors often resort to closed source solutions,
which contradicts the idea of openness.

The following talk will discuss challenges and contradictions with this model as well as providing ways forward on how to shape the open data debate in a way that systematically promotes the public interest.

Alexander Sander is the EU Public Policy Programme Manager for the Free Software Foundation Europe and based in Berlin.
