Description

Open data has a substantial economic, social and anti-corruption impact and contributes to the enhancement of the transparency and accountability of public authorities. Moreover, open data is a valuable resource facilitating the country’s economic development, including its digital economy, which is demonstrated by the results of global research. It is expected that the G-20 economies will increase their GDPs by 1.1 percent due to opening priority data sets. The Kyiv School of Economics and the Open Data Institute (UK) have analysed the potential economic impact of open data in Ukraine by using the European Commission’s research methodology. The study revealed that open data has resulted in over USD 700 million in revenue coming into Ukraine. If Ukraine further develops its open data policy, income could grow to USD 1.14 billion, or by 0.92 per cent of GDP, by 2025. However, there is also a significant problem: information administrators lack the knowledge and skills to operate open data in a highquality and effective manner. Moreover, there is low awareness on the part of the public and members of the business community as to the opportunities and ways to use open data. Establishing the National Centre for Open Data Competence will have a positive impact on raising awareness among information administrators and open data users, and will contribute to Ukraine’s rise in international anti-corruption ratings. It is expected that the National Centre for Open Data Competence will: offer knowledge base and training courses for various target audiences; bring together open-data-based services; and, become a platform for communications and the collection of propositions from the public as regards forming the national open data policy. 29 Meeting this obligation will contribute to raising the public information administrators’ awareness as to operations with open data; increasing the involvement of civil society and business representatives in solving problematic issues of using and working with open data; and, popularising the social, economic, and anti-corruption impact of open data.
