Since early 2013, researchers from the Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in Developing Countries research network have been carrying out case study research into the supply, use and outcomes of open data in various countries and contexts across the world. This first phase of the ODDC project has primarily been based around exploratory research. A second phase is now starting which looks to consolidate learning, and synthesise findings from the 17 projects carried out in Phase I.
Network members met for a workshop in Berlin on 14th and 15th July to bring together their research findings so far, and to plan future activities. This was followed by a public research sharing event, and a series of workshops held as part of the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival.
This report summarises content and discussions from these events. It is not a full synthesis of research findings or messages from the events. For initial insights from across the research cases please see the Open Data in Developing Countries Emerging Insights from Phase I. A full research synthesis is forthcoming in Q4 2014.
