The Spanish thematic network on Open Data and Smart Cities started in December 2014, with the objective to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and best practices in the area of open data and its application to smart cities, among research groups, technology centers, public administrations and private companies.
This thematic network on Open Data and Smart Cities started operating in November 2014, with seed funding from the Spanish Ministry of Economy (Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad). The core founders of the network are academic institutions, given the characteristics of the call for thematic network that funded it. However, the network is open to other stakeholders, particularly companies, public administrations, civic society organisations and individuals. Event: The network organises periodic 2-day meetings where network members present their results to each other on the first day, and then have an open day with anybody interested in the network activities on the second day.
