Open Knowledge Finland is a local chapter of Open Knowledge International
The Open Knowledge (Formerly Open Knowledge Foundation) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2004 dedicated to promoting open knowledge in all its forms. We are a leader in this field nationally and internationally. We’re also a collaborative effort, made up of open data and open knowledge enthusiasts around the globe led by a core team who report to the Board. This is supplemented by the expertise of a distinguished Advisory Board.
Open Knowledge’s activities are organized around local working groups and collaborative projects. Each of these initiatives has a different focus, but all are united by a common set of concerns and traditions related to the widespread sharing of data and knowledge across borders.
One of our major functions is acting as a hub for work on open knowledge, drawing together representatives from across the knowledge society – from academics, public servants and entrepreneurs to data experts, archivists and web developers.
A main goal of our recent community work has been facilitating the creation of regionally-focused Local Chapters around the world, and Finland is one of the first locations to be a part of this initiative, along with our existing sister chapters in Germany and Brasil. Want to get involved in this new collaboration? We’d love to hear from you.
