Following three years of research and innovation, the MELODIES project is holding a three-day event in which we share some of the challenges that we’ve faced using environmental Open Data in Europe – as well as the techniques and the solutions that we’ve developed.

Day 1: Liberating Open Data (pm only)

Keynote speeches from industry experts which will address topics such as:
What are the benefits of opening up data?
What challenges are there to overcome?
What are the lessons learnt from the MELODIES project?
What’s in the future for Open Data?
This is followed by a panel discussion and networking reception

Day 2: Open Data Services (full day)

Examples of using European Open Data to generate services in both the commercial and academic world. The day will consist of presentations and demonstrations of applications, services, tools and platform developed in the MELODIES project which use open data in order to tackle environmental problems and drive business. The presentations will focus on the broader experiences of using open data to create services and there will also be lots of time for 1-on-1 discussions with the individual service creators.

An in-depth look at the cloud platform and some of the open-source tools developed in the MELODIES project for working with open and linked data, including talks and hands-on tutorials. These tools include software for converting geospatial data to Linked Open Data, serving data via standard web protocols (e.g. SPARQL), visualizing data and building interactive data-driven web sites.
