Sir Tim has made a comprehensive statement on openness of data creating a 5 star rating, starting with one star for opening up on the web and raising to 5 stars in an interlinked open data world. 5 star open data a rare and it will take time to go, but it is good to have a vision
This is one such example…
The Responsible Data in Agriculture Paper launched recently was well received and featured in a GODAN ECOSOC meeting on the fringes of UNGA
Thomas Gass VP of UN-DESA said…
High level support was received by 10 governments at this event, echoing the value to governments that the G8 and G20 Agriculture Meetings of Chief Scientists have placed on GODAN in official statements in the past years.
Like the other papers this paper was commissioned by our researchers, written with partners, informed by a working group of partners, given profile by being published by GODAN and promoted online, through social and mainstream media and at our events.
There are several such examples of collaborative action to deliver serious policy focussed research. These pieces are being catalysed by several partners and perspectives:
For example the papers here came out of discussions with Syngenta, CTA and University of Ottawa Law School.
In the coming period we hope to work with our partners, especially in private sectors and well funded foundations to help bring some of these vision pieces to fruition.
