We’re happy to announce that Monithon was included in the short list of possibile winners of the Open Data Institute Open Data Award!
The ceremony will take place on the evening of the 4 November in London during the ODI Summit, a 2-days conference with talks and training opportunities.
The Open Data Institute was founded in 2012 by Professor Nigel Shadbolt, chairman of the Institute, and Tim Berners-Lee, recognized as the inventor of the World Wide Web.
Now the Institute is at the center of a global network of “nodes” aiming at “catalysing the evolution of open data culture to create economic, environmental, and social value”. The Italian node of the ODI is based at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler – Digital Commons Lab in Trento.
In this spreadsheet you can find all the nominees in the award 5 categories: Business, Innovation, Social Impact, Publisher and Individual Champion. Monithon is included in the Social Impact category, and is in great company! The UNHCR, MySociety, the Social Investment and Finance Team at the UK Cabinet Office and Internews Kenia have all been shortlisted in our category.
We are also very happy to see other initiatives from Italy like Enel (Open Data Business Award), OpenPolis / Depp (Innovation), and Regesta.exe (Publisher).
Fingers crossed! 🙂
