ODI Birmingham is a Node of the Open Data Institute and was formed in November 2015 to explore the applications of open data beyond cities.
Led by Innovation Birmingham and supported by commercial, public and third sector bodies, the Node aims to bring together all of birmingham’s open data and expertise under one roof to better facilitate the use of open data for public benefit.
“The Open Data Institute exists to create economic, environmental, and social value through open data. It helps unlock supply, generates demand, creates and disseminates knowledge to address local and global issues.”
The ODI has a network of world-class experts to collaborate, incubate, nurture and mentor new ideas, and promote innovation. It enables anyone to learn and engage with open data, and empowers its own teams to help others through professional coaching and mentoring.
