DIGIWHIST Workshop: Big data on public procurement

The goals of this workshop will be:

  • to introduce the large amounts of public procurement data unlocked by Opentender.eu
  • to explore ways through which it can be use in improving transparency in public administrations.
  • The workshop includes also feedback by end-users (e.g. public officials, journalists, developers and civil society).

Participants will have the chance:

  • to improve their knowledge on transparency and public procurement data
