Regional Data Network
Czech-Bavarian Open Data Network
The RegionalData project creates a cross-border network aimed at developing connection and cooperation between open data owners and digital service providers in the South Bohemia-Bavaria region.
This digital networking focuses especially on state administrations, municipalities and public organisations that are most active in data opening.
For many local and regional initiatives and institutions, providing open data is becoming a common way of sharing information with public. Digitalisation, transparency, easy accessibility of information and unrestricted sharing are a phenomenon of our times. Open data has various meanings and plays an important role depending on the area and purpose of use. It brings a fundamental change in the philosophy of access to information and becoming an integral part of most areas of public life.
