The Open Data Institute’s Annual Summit returns in 2014. Taking place over two days, we'll be hosting a training taster day, a conference full of world class speakers, and a gala dinner. We are delighted to be hosting the event at the British Film Institute for the day conference and the Museum of London for the evening meal.
The ODI Summit is a celebration of the innovation and evolution of open data and its impact across cultural, economic, environmental, and social spheres.
Our inaugural 2013 event celebrated the ODI's remarkable first year and drew comments such as “Best conference of the year” from attendees. We are building on that this November with the summit exploring the theme of “Open Innovation”. With 2014 marking the 25th anniversary of the Web, what better way to mark how far we’ve come than discussing the emergence of the next web: the web of data.
Join us for a day of gripping sessions that will explore the past, present and future of open data. Speakers include our founders Sirs Tim Berners-Lee and Nigel Shadbolt amongst other open data luminaries and leading thinkers from business, government, technology and start-ups. Speakers to be announced in the near future
