Taftie Annual Conference 16th June 2017 in Prague


         -   Too much data   -


Data availability, collection, storage, processing, evaluation and proper use for programming and programmes implementation are neuralgic points for many agencies. Open data and involvement of volunteer and/or NGO community starts to be important, especially when considering impact evaluation. What is the experience of different agencies? Do we have some good practice to share?


Relating to digitalisation and next production revolution, there is an increasing focus on the open innovation concept. How is the concept communicated, especially to enterprises? Is there a good practice example?


Sharing the data on European level is another issue.
