Participatory Design and Open Data Platforms for a Data Commons in Scotland

People Involved

Jack Keenan

Project Description

This project explores how we can design technologies that go beyond simply making data publicly accessible, and instead open data up to effective, innovative and potentially transformative public use.

Despite a national drive to create opportunities to exploit Open Data, there is a real risk that many efforts will fail because of what are fundamentally Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) design issues.

In partnership with Abertay University and University of Stirling who are leading the project
