HOMER project (Harmonising Open data in the Mediterranean through better access and Reuse of public sector information) has participated in the I International Congress on Open Government, focussed on the topic “Theory and Reality”, that has taken place in Valencia (Spain) on 21 and 22 November.
Aimed at analysing transparency, open government and opening data, this academic and scientific congress has been divided into three thematic areas: Open Government Policies, Transparency, and Open Data. Having scheduled more than 100 speeches and presentations from scholars, researchers and professionals in this matter, it has been undoubtedly a Congress of two days that has enabled participants to exchange enriching experiences on a topic whose relevance is increasing by leaps and bounds in society at large.
HOMER, represented by AGAPA, has actively participated in the different activities organised in this Congress aimed at encouraging public administrations to design and implement Open Government policies, as HOMER aims to open hundreds of public datasets, enhancing digital heritage transparency across the Mediterranean. AGAPA has presented the communication “Open Data and public sector information reuse from an international approach: HOMER project”, and has participated in the roundtable called “Open Data policies and institutions”.
The Congress, organised by the Association of political scientists of Valencia and the Network of experts in ITC law called DERECHOTICS together with the Vice-Rectorate for Research and Scientific Politics and the Faculty of Law of the University of Valencia, has had experts with proven experience in this field in its organisation committee and the scientific committee.
