Open Knowledge in Ireland

Open Knowledge in Ireland

Today, there are no more active Irish representatives on the Open Knowledge Network. Do you want to reactivate it? Here's how to join.


Denis Parfenov is a civic entrepreneur, founder of the Open Knowledge Ireland and Ambassador for Open Knowledge. Denis is passionate about empowering citizens to make informed choices by making information (data) available and accessible through open source technologies. He organises fora and runs regular Open Data Ireland events with a view to developing Ireland’s public data infrastructure and influencing policy at the highest political level. Denis initiated, planned and successfully executed a civic campaign which resulted in the Irish government's commitment to the Open Government Partnership (OGP). He has actively participated in the co-creation of the first Irish OGP National Plan which led to Ireland becoming a full member in July 2014. Denis is a member of Open Data Governance Board. He is a founder and CEO at Kubrik Engineering, which builds persistent and secure distributed data infrastructures.
