The LinkedUp Project is pushing forward the exploitation of open and linked data available on the Web, in particular by educational institutions and organisations. It is doing this by facilitating the LinkedUp Challenge which comprises of Veni, Vidi, and Vici: three consecutive competitions challenging developers to create interesting and innovative tools that analyse and/or integrate open data for educational purposes. As part of the sustainability of the project Open Knowledge are leading on the development of an Open Education Working Group to build a strong network of people interested in open data in education and related open education topics.
