Co-founded by the inventor of the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and renowned AI professor, Sir Nigel Shadbolt, and supported at board level by Martha Lane-Fox and Neelie Kroes, the ODI is an exceptional organisation, in an unprecedented age of data.
The ODI advises governments and businesses around the world on how to solve problems and create opportunities using data. A key part of this mission is to help organisations discover that not all innovation needs to come from inside, and that connecting the right people with the right data can lead to exciting new results.
The Open Data Institute is catalysing the evolution of open data culture to create economic, environmental, and social value. It helps unlock supply, generates demand, creates and disseminates knowledge to address local and global issues.
We convene world-class experts to collaborate, incubate, nurture and mentor new ideas, and promote innovation. We enable anyone to learn and engage with open data, and empower our teams to help others through professional coaching and mentoring.
