Open Data For Development’s research report The State of Open Data seeks to review the development of the Open Data movement over the past decade.

The primary goal is to learn in order to shape the future of Open Data based on information and evidence gathered from the community. With more than 30 individual authors, an Editorial Board, and a development methodology that allows for flexibility and community feedback, The State of Open Data will bring multiple points of view to the final publication.

Mor and Tim present the key findings from the upcoming report (published in May 2019) and in particular, how they can be useful for the Civic Tech community. They also cover how community feedback was used in their research method and how it can be relevant to other Civic Tech research.
