It is our pleasure to announce the next edition of the Beyond Data Event. The 2017 Beyond Data Event will be held on 30 March 2017 in the City of Eindhoven.
The advancements in this dynamic and disruptive market are rapidly developing. The opportunities for businesses, science and authorities are endless. But what’s next? How do we measure results, what is the added value to all stakeholders, how do we put the citizen at the centre of the debate? During the Beyond Data – on the edge – edition inspiring speakers, critical players, strategists and policy makers will take you on a journey to connect data organisations and data users. Not opposite each other, but side by side – albeit on the edge: we can learn from each other, even from our mistakes.
This edition will see a swift from pilots and trials to real life cases. We ask cities to come forward with their best practice cases, however small or big, and share them with other cities.
Some of the topics to be discussed on 30 March 2017 include:
If you have any suggestions for speakers, topics, initiatives or cases, then please let us know?

At the European Beyond Data Event all the communities and stakeholders from around the world come together to share experiences and enthusiasm, shape innovative ideas and tackle problems. The front running realized cases within Europe, are up on the stage. During the Beyond Data Event we talk about implemented projects, collaborations and outcomes. And which next steps this can lead to. Examples from cities , industries, research institutions but also innovative start ups challenge the early adopters for new insights. But also organizations who are researching the options of setting up an open data project, achieve lots of information and inspiring thoughts to get started.
An event not to be missed for everyone who is challenging the new world beyond data!
Open data is no longer without obligations. We want to take it a step further: creating more start-ups, more apps and work more efficient.
We want to put this in motion, together with the cities. Which cities would like to accept this challenge?
A lot of attention for the Code Fellows concept; they make the difference.
Not just a tool for transparency and economic profit and innovation. We see new possibilities in cooperation. Not the number of data sets are important, but thinking about how to use data.
