Open(ing) geospatial data 
Potential and challenges in interdisciplinary research practice

On the 1st of February 2023 the Geodienst and the Digital Competence Centre invite researchers to come to the CIT (Donald Smitszaal - ground floor) to exchange experiences, ideas and best practices on the collection, management, protection, publication and reuse of geospatial data in a multi-disciplinary data round table.

The programme will consist of lightning talks of researchers covering different topics and cases that highlight either potential or challenges in open(ing) geospatial data.

We invite researchers for 6 to 8 minute lightning talks on different topics:
