19 – 20 January 2015. Wageningen, the Netherlands. Wageningen University and Research Centre. The GODAN workshop “Creating Impact with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition” was hosted by the Dutch Government (Ministry of Economic Affairs) and was open to a broader public; the Partner conference was for GODAN partners only. The workshop brought together a mix of key players from public as well as private sector organisations at national, international and global
level: governments, businesses, consultants, universities, research organisations and NGOs.
The general objective and scope of the workshop was:
- To develop a shared understanding how open data in the field of agriculture, food supply and nutrition can lead to societal impact;
- To define and specify potential impacts in either economic terms, improved governance, or improved understanding of strategic decision making.
- To explore routes to impact, business models behind open data, and good practices. This explorative approach will focus on agriculture, food supply and nutrition, but also seeks to build on lessons learned from other sectors.
- To outline a strategic agenda that can be used as a starting point for the GODAN Secretariat (to be established in spring 2015).
