Join us for the next Young Fabian Tech Network roundtable, covering discussion about how open data about government and public services can drive forward accountability, reduce the scope for corruption and abuses in office; and build a more meaningful interaction between the state and citizens.
Steve Goodrich, Transparency International UK Senior Research Office and author of 'Tackling Corruption through Open Data', and Alexandra Runswick, Director of Unlock Democracy, will be speaking kick starting discussion. The speakers, and Q&A, will cover:
* What is open data all about, how well is the UK doing in terms of producing useful data about government and what is it used for?
* What is the potential of open data for improving government and improving people's lives?
* What are the stumbling blocks to tapping this potential and for making a real difference in government and for the public?
We hope to see you there to join in the discussion!
