Stick around after the conference and turn this into a 2 day event! Directly after Open Belgium, you will get the opportunity to take part in the hands-on Civic Lab Summit in Hasselt.
Open Knowledge Belgium has managed to influence policy and research, develop open applications and tools, educate the next generation of open activists and boost diversity… but only thanks to the amazing open community in Belgium!
In celebration of the global Open Data Day, we want to bring together volunteer innovators, scientists, developers, policy specialists, designers, etc. from all over Belgium on Saturday 7 March. The focus is on the development of existing projects through workshops, the exchange of ideas on different topics in the field of Open Knowledge and perhaps even the start of new projects.
So bring your laptop and discover, share, act!
