Course subject(s) 3: Technical and Legal Aspects

In this module we examine technical and legal aspects of government information sharing. First, we focus on the use of research data, and the way that this data can be analysed through Virtual Research Environments (VREs). Then we discuss metadata for open government data, and we investigate technologies for linking big and open data. Second, legal aspects of governmental information sharing are described, such as directives to stimulate Open Government.

This module aims to attain the following learning objectives.

  • LO3: You are able to describe basic concepts related to Open Government Data.
  • LO4: You are able to analyze and discuss benefits, barriers and potential negative effects of a particular open government case, including technological and legal aspects.
