The Open Data Institute is catalyzing the evolution of open data culture to create economic, environmental, and social value. It helps unlock supply, generates demand, creates and disseminates knowledge to address local and regional issues.

The Open Data Institute (ODI) now has a node in North Carolina – The Open Data Institute of North Carolina (ODINC). The ODINC will create a Platform as a Service for open innovation and sustainable entrepreneurship and an associated regional ecosystem. The ODINC will partner with public and private sector organizations to accomplish its executive plan.

What is the ODI?

The Open Data Institute is catalysing the evolution of open data culture to create economic, environmental, and social value. It helps unlock supply, generates demand, creates and disseminates knowledge to address local and global issues.

We convene world-class experts to collaborate, incubate, nurture and mentor new ideas, and promote innovation. We enable anyone to learn and engage with open data, and empower our teams to help others through professional coaching and mentoring.

What is a Node of the ODI?

We [the ODI] have collaborated with dozens of people around the world, in an open process, to co-design a global network of ODI ‘Nodes’.

We have borrowed from the design principles of the web itself to bring people and organizations together, and will use open data both to collaborate with each other, and as the primary output of the network.

Each ODI Node has agreed to adopt the ODI Charter, which is a open source codification of the ODI itself, and embodies principles of open data business, publishing, communication, and collaboration.

The ODINC

ODINC is a Regional Node that will deliver projects, and can provide training, research, and development. ODINC is available to support regional governments in developing Open Data platforms and the necessary workforce development to support this new economy.
