YourDataStories Consortium Meeting in Bonn


When & Where?

The 6th YDS Plenary Meeting took place on March 2nd and 3rd, 2017 in Bonn, Germany.

Topics discussed

The main focus of the 2-day consortium meeting in Bonn, at Deutsche Welle’s headquarters, was to get an overview of the current status of the project and plan the second year review meeting, coming up in April. The consortium members used the chance to give and get an update on the latest developments of all three YDS demonstrators and discussed further features, like the mobile app, further data as well as social media integration.

Moments from the Consortium Meeting

The project also used the event to invite representatives from two other Horizon2020 projects, DigiWhist and OpenBudgets, to exchange information on the projects’ work and results, to discuss overlaps both on a technical level and in regard to content, and to elaborate on future collaboration. Both discussions were very fruitful, leading to useful exchanges on data-sets and data-management, general information on how others deal with open data and procurement issues, as well as in regard to further joint dissemination events.
