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?

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.

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.
