Posted 1 CommentPosted in Webinar
February 2nd, 2021, 10:00 – 13:00 (CET)

One of the +Resilient supporting legs is the open data technology, which is widely unknown by non-technical organizations and organisms.

This topic is deemed to be useful both for public and private bodies interested in deepening their knowledge of Open Data and its potential usages.

In the first session of the Webinar, our invited speaker will introduce the Open Data technology and where it comes from.

In the second session of the Webinar, the participants will have an overview of the potential benefits of Open Data when dealing with public institutions and local governments.

Finally, in the third session the participants will get first-hand knowledge about some European initiatives that use open data to reach their objectives.

In the second session of the Webinar the participants will have the opportunity for practical work in groups, addressing issues such as: How to create and screen a social business idea? How to integrate financial, social and environmental aspects in the analysis? How to review/rethink the business model of a social organisation in operation?
