Presentation of research project findings at IODC 2015

Francois van Schalkwyk presentated the findings from the synthesis research on open data intermediaries in developing countries at the Open Data Research Symposium 2015, a side event of the 3rd International Open Data Conference, in Ottawa on 27 May 2015.

The presentation was well received and generated a post-presentation discussion on technology-focused intermediaries as failed intermediaries (or 'prosumers'), the roles of librarians as open data intermediaries, and the need for further research that takes into account the impacts (both positive and negative) of the products and services made available to citizens and other user-groups by open data intermediaries.
