On 4 June, Värmland organized the regional Open Space workshop in Karlstad. 16 persons participated and learned about Open Data/PSI and shared their own ideas in the area. In Värmland, Open Data and PSI are still areas which are low prioritized.
The results from the Open Space workshop were not direct new innovations – instead the focus was on a regional cooperation to open up data to the region’s citizens. The results from the workshop will be presented to the directors of public sectors organizations in Värmland on 27 August. Hopefully this workshop was a start to make Värmland more open towards Open Data and PSI – which will lead to more innovations in the field.
