Part of the Right to Know across Europe: impacts and lessons learned session of TICTeC Show and Tells 2021
Tuesday 28th September, 15:00 – 16:00 BST

Open data in France somehow looks like the Pisa Tower: a beautiful building (open data is mandatory by law), but leaning because its foundations (the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)) are in bad shape. In this presentation, Samuel speaks about the weaknesses of FOIA in France, how the French Alaveteli platform manages them and the first success stories of the platform.
