Towards open and sustainable information

We are proud to announce an upcoming seminar Towards Open and Sustainable Information 19-20.11.2014 in Mikkeli. The full program and registration are available here.

It’s a free two day seminar on topics such as:

  • Finnish national data exchange layer and Estonian X-Road solution
  • Digital preservation and archiving
  • Digital information management and standards
  • Open source and sustainable development
  • My data and human centric open data

We have an excellent list of high profile speakers from international and national organizations such as Ministry of Finance, Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, Ministry of Education and Culture, University of Eastern Finland, University of Hull, Plymouth University, Open Knowledge Finland, National Archives of Finland, National Archives of Sweden and others.

The seminar will be bilingual: the first day will be in English and covers international topics. The second day will be in Finnish and focuses more on national level topics. During both seminar days there will be exhibition by partners, private companies, organizations and projects operating in the field of the seminar topics. In the evening of the first day we will host a dinner for our speakers and guests. The details will be announced later but there will be food and networking opportunities.

The seminar is hosted by Open Source Archive (OSA) and SOTU-sähkö projects. As said earlier, the seminar will be free of charge and we will provide you with coffee and soup lunch. The evening event will be paid by the participants themselves. The project publications will be available during the seminar. The publications provides detailed articles by the speakers and the project topics.

As a last announcement, I would like to note that we will do our best to update the blog more often. As often with projects, the schedule tightens towards the end. We have lots of development going on as well as publications and events.
