accessible to everyone
At Open Knowledge, we are committed to applying open knowledge as a guiding principle to design the infrastructures and organisations of the future, inspiring and leading those who want to transform our digital and physical world by building a free, sustainable, and inclusive future.
That is why we are constantly developing an innovative pipeline of tools and related services to enable, promote and teach collaborative, open, and reproducible research making crucial data used and useful for the public interest.
Take a look at our governance models, tools, and standards that are accessible and adaptable to all, and join a movement that believes in the transformative power of openness.
The Open Definition gives full details on the requirements for open data and content. Open data are the building blocks of open knowledge. Open knowledge is what open data becomes when it's useful, usable and used.
To ensure different open datasets are "interoperable" and therefore do form a commons, we need licensing to reduce uncertainty. That's why we create the Open Data Commons: a set of conformant licenses that deliver clarity and simplicity.
From definitions to licensing to, in the near future, governance models, open standards are functional tools for all communities and individuals who want to create open data and design reproducible research.
Latest updates of our tools
The Open Knowledge Foundation team closely followed this process and shares the experience with CKAN in this short text.
One week ago at MozFest, we began the process of rethinking and updating the Open Definition for today’s challenges and contexts. Here are the main takeaways.
We are sincerely interested in collaborating with the Open Knowledge Network to support the development of a standard for election data. We believe that standardising the way governments publish their election results is crucial for developing tools to strengthen democratic processes.
