Open Data Manchester has been leading the way in open data practice in Manchester since 2010. It was set up as an advocacy group to encourage and share open data practice between public bodies, business and citizens alike. It has been instrumental in the setting up of DataGM and various other open data initiatives in Greater Manchester and beyond. It is most well known for bringing together communities of practice to help disseminate and share knowledge, participate in policy making and support organisations using data. Now, having taken up residence at Federation in the centre of Manchester we are looking at building a centre for state of the art data practice by pulling in the knowledge and skills of the data community both in Greater Manchester and further afield. Get in touch and join us on our journey.
