Open Data Roundtables

The Open Data Roundtables are spaces in which the Government, civil society and other actors work together in pursuit of opening up public data. At these roundtables, the discussion seeks to be inclusive and consensual. They also seek to address public policy through various points of view. Thus, each sector contributes with its technical knowledge, experience and will. The Open Data Roundtables have among their objectives to allow a greater understanding on the part of the public, promoting their active participation in the construction of policies.
