The ODI and Sir Nigel Shadbolt are at CeBit 2014


10th - 14th March 2014 - Hannover, Hall 9, stand C44

ODI Chairman and Co-founder Sir Nigel Shadbolt and Commercial Director Stuart Coleman will be in Hannover next week at CeBIT2014 – the world’s leading technology event with over 230,000 visitors from more than 120 countries.

The keynote theme at CeBIT this year is "Datability" – the ability to process and use vast quantities of data responsibly and sustainably.

The UK is this year’s official partner country, and the ODI has been working with the UK Government (UKTI) to showcase the value and potential of open data to the economy and businesses.

The ODI at CeBIT:

  • The ODI will have a stand at the event (Hall 9, C44), and is welcoming anyone who wants to know more about the potential of open data.

  • Chairman and Co-founder Sir Nigel Shadbolt is giving a keynote speech on Centre Stage, hall 8, on Tuesday 11th March at 11.30am about The Power of Open Data.

  • Stuart Coleman, ODI Commercial Director, will be chairing the 'Big Data and the Future of the web' seminar in the British Business Lounge/Hall of Nations on Tuesday 11th March, 12-2 pm and will be on the panel for the 'UK tech startup ecosystem' seminar on Wednesday 12th March, 12-2pm.

Stuart says,

"In 2013, the ODI convened global data leaders from industry, academia, government and the third sectors and connected 100s of innovators and implementers. In 2014, we want to continue to demonstrate and enable the potential for open data, helping more and more organisations to realise the benefits of open data through the ODI’s growing global community."
