Open Data and the move towards a transparent culture is gaining momentum. Open Data Manchester supported by FutureEverything’s Open Data Cities project is challenging the closed way that public information is handled and showing by practice and example that opening up data with minimal restriction will bring benefits for people, businesses and public bodies within the region.

The monthly Open Data Manchester meetings are the place to see and influence the progress of this move towards openness. Anyone can pitch up and talk and the whole event is about sharing practice, information and knowledge.
