ILLUMINATING THE VALUE OF OPEN DATA
The Data Foundation's mission is to illuminate the benefits of transforming government information into standardized, open data. The technology industry is our constituency. Government is our primary audience.
Accordingly, we undertake research projects that objectively explore the benefits and challenges of open data. Our research projects are intended to make open data concepts accessible for policymakers. We select research projects with these broad criteria in mind.
Our research projects explain how open data can improve government and society - and the related challenges and drawbacks policymakers must conquer. We are grateful to our Data Foundation supporters for making these projects possible.
