This Data Talks session takes place at Wednesday 8 July from 13:00 to 14:00 CEST/ 12:00-13:00 BST. Register for the Data Talks here.
The team behind the EU European Data Portal and Support Centre for Data Sharing projects talks to three powerful women Italy owes its progress in open data (dati aperti) to: Francesca De Chiara, researcher at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Giorgia Lodi, interoperability advocate extraordinaire at the Agenzia per l’Italia Digitale, and Maria Claudia Bodino, wearing (too?) many hats at the Italian Prime Minister Cabinet Office. We explore their origin stories, how they learned about open data, got involved in it, and what their role is today in pushing progress forward.
