The Economic Impact of Open Data
Economic impact is a key driver of the adoption of open data by both government and industry. However, the open data sector is still struggling to understand how best to measure and frame economic impact. 
In recent years, there have been several attempts to measure the macro economic impact at global, regional, national and sector levels. For example, the European Data Portal (EDP) conducted an overview of the economic benefits of open data in Europe. In April of this year, the Ukraine released the results of a national economic impact assessment. While other studies have attempted to measure the value of open data in a particular sector eg transport. Various research methodologies have piloted, but there is still no consistent approach for conducting economic impact assessments.
In this workshop, speakers from a range of contexts will highlight recent research efforts through a case study approach. Participants are invited to share examples from their own work, and contribute to developing a shared research agenda.

Imagining the Future of Open Data
The future is exciting and scary. Is it an infinite library of knowledge or map that is a size of a country? The future is a place where you can find all animals that:  
(a) belong to the emperor
(b) are embalmed
(c) are tame
(d) are suckling pigs
(e) are sirens
(f) are fabulous

 The future holds open and closed data of every single memory and does not have a single classification at all.

Confused from the description above? Great! 
Come and join us to imagine the future in an unsession that is beyond your imagination.

Mind the Gap - Mapping the Open Data Ecosystem
One of the by-products of the State of Open Data report is a dataset of actors, initiatives and themes where people are working on open data. Together with our authors, we would like to share our actor mapping, see where there are gaps and under what type of action might help to create a better innovative environment there. how can we identify who is influential, what is missing, how best to leverage best practices through peer-to-peer learning, and where we need to put more efforts.

People’s Rights and Data: The Data Empowerment Debate
Along with the unprecedented increase in data accumulation comes the process of datafication – turning many aspects of people’s lives into digital data to create new value. This development comes at the expense of threats to privacy and personal data protection and the loss of control over people's own data, mainly to the benefit of powerful players such as governments and corporations. This session explores avenues by which this dangerous trend can be overturned or managed properly to ensure that people remain at the core of data initiatives. Building on the expertise and experiences of participants, the session will seek to understand what is required for data empowerment, not data extraction to become the norm in data initiatives, be it open, big, thick, citizen-generated or real-time data.

Putting Open Data Measurement to Use
The past years have seen a rise of measurement tools, assessing readiness implementation and impact of open government data publication. Some tools focus on national data collections whilst others have a focus on specific government agencies such as national statistics offices. To date,  more than 180 different indicators exist to metrify government performance. Sometimes, these indicators overlap, or are entirely similar.  In other cases, indicators apply very different assessment criteria.
Indices not only monitor, but also alter the behaviour of those who are measured. Recent insights show that those who are measured might adjust their actions to the metrics that fit their needs best. The co-existence of open data measurement tools prompts many questions. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each tool? What are the implications of their coexistence? Is it beneficial that multiple measurements exist? Do they contribute to the advancement of open data practices? And, based on these insights, what steps could be taken to alter the measurement landscape? This session will first explore the strengths and limitations of different measurement tools as well as their audiences. Based on these insights, the session will discuss methodological possibilities to more strongly align these tools.

Data Standards - Design & Adoption
It takes a lot for open data to contribute to real impact: from political will to an operational website, and everything in-between. Standards help to make sure that open data is useful, by codifying learning and encouraging a common data language between everyone involved.

This session will bring together civil society, developers and open data advocates to explore data standards design and adoption. It will start with brief talks to share learning and provoke discussion, then move tofacilitated conversation to explore topics, including: 
- Why are standards important? And who are they important to? Explore standards as tools for collaboration, and hear from the global south about the impact that open data and open standards have on citizens’ lives
- Learning from the technology sector; Silicon Valley starts with an MVP - what can open data learn from this?
- Tensions between what’s easy and what’s important; what are the trade-offs? How do you resolve them? 
- Our stories - what have we done, what have we learned?

The Emerging Business of Open Data
This highly interactive workshop will give participants new insights into the business applications of open data and private sector value opportunities in key sectors, supported by three real-world cases from LATAM and Kenya that demonstrate different business models and offer lessons for engaging with the private sector through public-private collaboration.

The session is co-organised by the Iniciativa Latinoamericana por los Datos Abiertos (ILDA), and the Center for Open Data Enterprise. Some of the cases we intend to review are part of a current work led by ILDA, with the support of Avinas Americas and the InterAmerican Development Bank (IADB)  that maps initiatives and organizations moving the open data and civic technology agenda further.

How to Run an Open Data Challenge and Not Waste Everybody’s Time
Open Data Challenges are a common practice to boost innovation, create buzz around a project and build a community. However, many of the ideas, business models, and tools that are built in these events are not sustainable. Organizations put a lot of effort into creating and running challenges, and participants can spend a lot of time preparing submissions without ever receiving feedback on what they could improve if they weren’t chosen. More importantly, without the next stage support to attract follow-up funding or scale business models, many innovations are shortlived.

This session will look behind the scenes of different Open Data Challenges (360Giving Challenge Fund, OCP/ODI challenge on Open Contracting,  and ODC in Ukraine ) to share what went well, what didn’t, and what impacts we have seen from running challenges. We will then work together to build on best practices to create models for a new generation of open data challenges.

Think Local - Better Data Through Community Engagement
 
One of the hottest topics on people’s minds is open data. Yet as the State of Open Data rightly questions, has this trend led to individuals, organizations, and governments actually opening data, and more importantly, using data to inform policy and better the community? Or is open data just that - a trend? How are communities and governments using open data? And what kinds of data are being opened? And what about data that isn’t collected by governments; how is that being created, collected, and shared among the community? And finally, is this data actually changing the lives of people in local communities?

These are the questions we seek to answer. Through an interactive panel presentation, we will discuss three different approaches to open data that have been sourced from throughout the TechSoup Global Network. Each project has a different methodology and way of opening or generating data, but all share the common thread of community involvement to make sure that open data is representative of all parts of a community to ensure transparency, completeness, and civic engagement.

Beneficial Ownership Workshop: How to open data from real owners of companies and use it with results
The Panama & Paradise Papers showed us one of the darkest faces of public-private corruption: The concealment of the owners or real beneficiaries of the companies. This deeply rooted practice allows funds to be diverted through corporations or offshore companies, hindering the tracking and investigation of corruption offenses and rendering the system.
Through this interactive workshop we intend:
- Present the standard and Open Ownership Register (https://register.openownership.org/), a platform that collects and publishes information globally and in an open format.
- Show successful cases of publication of information or registers of beneficial owners in open format such as the United Kingdom, or innovators, such as the case of Ukraine and contrast them with cases of information gaps.
- Present the difficulties that the countries find to advance in the implementation, the pros and cons of opening that information.
- Listen to the proposals of civil society to generate concrete commitments in this matter.
- Discuss with the participants what strategies to implement to overcome the lack of public information and open data in an alternative way.

Putting Open Up Guides to Use: Climate Change Open Up Guide
This workshop will explore a draft version of the Open Up Guide for Climate Data now being developed under the Open Data Charter alongside the WRI and CODE in order to gather input and engage the open data community and climate change experts in developing this important resource for climate action.
Government agencies and NGOs need to collect, open, and use data of many kinds to address climate change effectively and enable stakeholders--including vulnerable communities--to prepare for climate risks and take advantage of resilience-building activities. To help meet this need, the Open Data Charter, World Resources Institute and the Center for Open Data Enterprise are developing an “Open Up Guide for Climate Data” with guidance on key national datasets. The Guide will include an accessible online repository of key use cases, data assets, and standards and key use cases, and is designed initially for use at the national level. Depending on a country’s particular needs, the data can be used for climate change mitigation, for adaptation, for reporting on climate progress, or for management of climate finance.
This workshop will engage participants in helping to refine the Guide and, in turn, will help them apply it to their own country’s circumstances and needs. The workshop will begin with a brief presentation on the Guide and then break into discussion groups based on different types of issues and applications (mitigation, resilience, etc.) The results will be improvements to the Guide, increased awareness of the application of open data for climate action, and potentially new data-driven strategies that participants can develop in addressing climate change in their own countries.
