In a nutshell
EU DataViz 2021 was an international conference on open data and data visualisation addressing the needs of the public sector across the EU. Online from Luxembourg to the world, it was organised by the Publications Office of the European Union as part of the EU Open Data Days. The conference was funded by ISA2 programme of the European Union.
Held on 23 and 24 November 2021, this free online conference provided the opportunity to share experiences and latest trends in open data and data visualisation. The first day focused on ways to ensure open data is freely available for reuse, which in turn improves transparency and leads to better decision-making and citizen engagement. The second day highlighted data visualisation as a powerful tool for various purposes, from making complex information accessible in a meaningful way to exploring policy scenarios.
EU DataViz brought together the open data and data visualisation community, including policymakers, researchers, academia, private entities, students and citizens interested in the power of open data as a factor determining our future.
The recordings of the event sessions and presentations are available in the Programme tab.

How can value be generated from open data?
The amount of data made freely available by public authorities is rising. In addition, situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic highlight the importance of reliable and connected information and effective communication. How can we ensure that open data is available and can be interlinked and reused to generate value?
Creating a common European data space is an essential step towards bringing the value of data to people and organisations and developing effective solutions.
Furthermore, data visualisation helps unleash the potential of the existing data and communicate complex messages clearly. It can be applied across multiple sectors and areas of life, such as mobility, health or energy.
