Last week at the Digital Agenda Assembly the winners of the Open Data Challenge, Europe’s biggest open data competition to date, were announced by Vice President of the European Commission Neelie Kroes.
There were 430 entries from 24 countries. You can see a full list of all the winners at OpenDataChallenge.org. We got lots of press coverage, and we are very excited about building on the competition to strengthen Europe’s growing community of developers, designers, and other open data users.
We also launched a new beta version of PublicData.eu, which aggregates information about datasets from local, regional and national data catalogues across Europe. If you’d like more information about what the Open Knowledge Foundation is doing on the LOD2 project, you can get regular updates at lod2.okfn.org.
