Open data networks open up data concerned with a certain topic in which that network is specialized. Numerous meetings are held throughout the year for which our hackathons are also a platform. During these meetings, knowledge is exchanged about the opening up of data. They also offer an excellent opportunity to conceptualize and present potential applications.
