The aim of this action is to seek solutions to citizens’ or businesses’ needs or problems through the opening and reuse of public data. To do this, on July 11th, a meeting took place in Cordoba to establish a working group as well as to carry out the first workshop that has defined specific issues to be addressed and to detect those needs of businesses and consumers that can be met through the opening and reuse of public data.
