Hey good open data/knowledge folks,

Forgive me for being a bit vague, but I promise it’s to your benefit ;)
(erhm… though maybe not entirely “open” ;)

I wonder whether you'd care to offer some ideas and reflections on Nordic
cooperation. Some of us inter-Nordic ones will meet physically to discuss
what can be done, and how, in terms of developing Nordic cooperation in
open data/knowledge, at the end of the month.

It would be really great to gather some ideas from civil society about what
kind of efforts that could be good and what kind of activities one could
run, in a Nordic open data context.

Though it’s very kind of governments being the primary pushers of this
workshop, I fear there might be some ‘innovation’ centric ideas being
pursued. It would be good to balance this out with some civil society

This is where you come in :)

While of course, a lot of things are primarily realised on a national
level, as there are many impressive Nordic examples of, there are
initiatives that are easier realised once there's Nordic Council /
governmental pressure to realise things, such as something that could come
out of a Nordic cooperation (and maybe even some government support :)

We need ideas and things to suggest.

Please list ideas where Nordic cooperation could be good - eg. ideas that
aren't possible to realise locally due to political pressure, lack of
people, data, and/or funding. Or just mention project that would be great
to do internationally, in the Nordics :)

Any notes are very welcome!

Thanks and all the best,
