The Center for Open Data Enterprise works to improve the open data ecosystem in three ways. In the U.S. and internationally, we host interactive ROUNDTABLES, conduct user-centered RESEARCH, and provide TOOLS & TRAININGS for greater application of open data.
These interactive convenings bring government agencies together with their data users to help identify high-value datasets, find solutions to data problems, and establish new collaborations. The Roundtables include presentations, discussions, and breakout sessions to produce an action plan and published report. Each Roundtable can focus on a single agency’s work or a cross-cutting area of interest. We host three types of Roundtables: interagency, agency-specific, and topical.
The Center’s research provides insights, best practices and recommendations on utilizing and investing in open data for social good and economic growth. Our reports, white papers, and policy notes provide an overview of current open data applications, facilitate analysis of trends and opportunities, and provide recommendations for management and use of open data.
