Learning session on Open Data for Dutch provinces

Author: Adrian Offerman

On June 1st, the Dutch 'Leer- en Expertisepunt Open Overheid' (Open Government Learning and Expertise Centre) will organise a learning session on Open Data for Dutch provinces. The meeting is aimed at people working in the provinces who want to know more about open data.

After an introduction to the topic by Paul Suijkerbuijk from ICTU, the ICT Implementation Organisation of the Dutch government, people from the Noord-Holland and Groningen provinces will present their experiences with open data. They will focus on the possibilities offered as well as issues that should be taken into consideration. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) will present their work on open data and talk about how to make sure data cannot be linked to private individuals in order to guarantee privacy.
