Endorse Open Data in a Big Data World

The 2015 edition of Science International has developed an international accord on the values of open data in the emerging scientific culture of big data. The Accord recognises the need for an international framework of principles on “Open Data in a Big Data World” and proposes a comprehensive set of principles.

These principles provide a guiding framework for an African data science capacity mobilization initiative spearheaded by CoDATA-ICSU and supported by other Science International partners. The initiative puts forward a comprehensive capacity mobilization plan, to be co-designed and delivered with key partners in Africa. It proposes the establishment of an African Open Data Platform, which will coordinate a series of actions at different levels of national science systems in the region.

Two versions of the Accord are available for download, a short four-pager giving an overview of the key issues, and a long version desribing in detail a proposed international framework for open data in a big data world.

If you are an organization wishing to endorse the principles laid out in this accord, please fill in this endorsement form.
