Grantmakers and charities generate large amounts of data through the course of their work, and not just through funding cycles. If this data could be shared and compared easily it could be useful to many other organisations, including charities, NGOs and other funders, enabling a better use of resources by everyone.
We’ll cover how we can create a data-sharing community among grantfunders in Northern Ireland, what they can do to ensure their data is open and useful, and how grantseekers can make better use of their time and energy in applying to for funding.
As well as developing ways that open grant data can be made useful to Northern Ireland, we’ll also look at how 360 Giving work as in partnership with major grantfunding bodies and Open Data Services Co-operative to develop an open data infrastructure and provide technical support for grantmakers publishing their data.
Alice Casey from 360 Giving will join via webcast to talk about how open collaboration can improve the insight that grantmakers can gain on their impact, and give guidance on the data standards that will help to improve the accurate, timely, useful and commonality of grant funding information.
NICVA’s Detail Data project will also explain how they can help to support grantfunders and seekers locally on an ongoing basis.
