Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Despite the increasing amount of public open data, the percentage of the population that accesses it is still reasonably small, namely due to the lack of knowledge about their existence and / or the difficulty in working with these data.
As such, there is untapped potential for using open data for innovation and stimulating economic activity.
What is the commitment? Creation of small online tutorial videos about the use of open data platforms and some examples of operations and studies that can be performed with this data.
These tutorials will be made available to university students and researchers, at a first phase.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? The measure aims to provide a greater percentage of the population with the knowledge needed to use the open data platforms.
As a first step, the videos will focus on the dissemination and use of the platforms. In a second phase, the main objective of the videos will be about the structure of the open data and how operations and studies can be carried out with them.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? The commitment fits in the Open Data and Use of ICT and Digital Inclusion data Axes.
