Creating Impact with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition

Creating Impact with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition

Event Overview

The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, CABI, GODAN, CTA and Wageningen UR are partnering to organise the 3rd Workshop on Creating Impact with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition. The workshop will be staged at the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, in The Hague.

The objectives of this workshop are:

  • To build action agendas to strengthen the role of open data in achieving sustainable production of food at lower environmental and social costs from both a public and private sector perspective;
  • To identify and scope big wins of open data towards impact and build collaborative partnerships for implementation;
  • To develop organisational and practical capacities for working with open data in a meaningful way.

The workshop will bring together a mix of key players from public as well as private sector organisations at national, international and global level: governments, businesses, consultants, universities, research organisations and NGOs. Participants are invited to share their views, practices, success stories/failures and business cases in participatory workshops and interactions. All participants will be invited to commit to personal action plans and concrete steps to actively turn the power of open data into real impact.

It is a rapidly growing group, currently with over 282 partners from national governments, non-governmental, international and private sector organisations that have committed to a joint Statement of Purpose. The initiative focuses on building high-level support among governments, policymakers, international organizations and business.
