Crafting Open Data Policies in a Complex Era:
How can data save the government money
and make it more efficient?

Open data policies drive government transparency, public accountability, and citizen-centered services. These policies provide valuable data resources to citizens while enhancing the effectiveness of government. However, the types of data that governments deal with are increasingly diverse and complex, particularly in cases where the government collects proprietary data or partners with private sector entities to accomplish government missions.

Please join us for a luncheon panel discussion that will explore the development of open data policies tailored to maximize the benefits of government data, while at the same time incentivizing private sector participation in producing “hybrid data” of use to government, industry, academia, and others.

Lunch Will Be Provided
