Open Government and Transparency: The UK Experience - Liveblog & webcast
Monday, January 30, 2012
Replay Tariq Khokhar's liveblog from an event featuring a presentation from Francis Maude, the UK’s Minister for the Cabinet Office (@CabinetOfficeUK) on the UK's experience of open data and government.
Mr. Maude is responsible for taking forward the UK Government’s transparency agenda. One example is the UK’s new Government Licensing Framework, under which management of Government intellectual property defaults to be open and free. He will discuss the implications of transparency for government, how the UK has gone about implementing the new Framework, the challenges and lessons learnt, and how the UK’s experience can apply to some of the World Bank’s client countries, some of whom have already joined the UK as members of the Open Government Partnership.
