The Latin American Initiative for Open Data (ILDA) is among the Open Data Day 2019 supporters!

Open Data Day 2019 is closer each day and we’re excited to see the ODD events map slowly coming together in different parts of the world!

OPEN DATA DAY 

International Open Data Day (ODD; #OpenDataDayis an annual event that promotes awareness and use of Open Data all over the world. Different communities of practice keep creating local events on this day. 

As always, during ODD, the international community expects to gain momentum and highlight the different uses that Open Data can have in different contexts.

For the ODD 2019, which occurs on the 2nd of March, two new organisations will support Open Data Day events: the Latin American Initiative for Open Data (ILDA) and the Open Contracting Partnership!

ABOUT POLICIES AND USES OF OPEN DATA IN LATIN AMERICA...

In its first phase ILDA conducted a series of basic and applied research to understand and map the Open Data ecosystem in Latin America. This is the list of the research the ILDA conducted:

EDUCATION & OPEN DATA

TEACHING MODELS & OPEN DATA

OPEN JUSTICE

VECTOR TRANSMISSION DISEASES & OPEN DATA

BUDGET & OPEN DATA

OPEN CITIES

PUBLIC PROCUREMENT & OPEN DATA

OPEN PARLIMENTS

During the ODD, ILDA will provide funds to support specifically events that take place in countries in Latin America, without specific track limitation!
