Open Policy Making

Policy Making and Open Data

Is open data capable of improving political decision making and governance?
Open policy making follows the approach to refine collaborative, evidence-based politics, through applying open data and information technologies. Decision making can become more accurate, transparent and comprehensible.
We invite you to an open discussion on the 10th of November 2016 at the Fraunhofer institute FOKUS in Berlin. The European research project Policy Compass and invited speakers from prominent research projects and organisations address the workshop to modern policy-makers, SMEs, data journalist and research institutions working on this topic.
We warmly welcome you to debate with us about how we can shape politics and policy making more efficient and transparent through open data and IT technologies.
