< p style="text-align: center;"> Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 28 After the presentations at Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 we took a short break to have the first and essential break for “fika” having coffee, tea, cookies and cinnamon buns. With participants warmed up and inspired by projects there was a lot of chatting in the space. Following this we moved on towards workshop and demonstrations, e.g. having participants ideate and brainstorm on why open data for cultural heritage should be maintained and released. The FrågaStaten project were letting users test to request public documents from the EU institutions. FrågaStaten.se (to be launched) will help you to make Freedom of Information Access request and the platform publishes all requests and answers online. It can be said that it is a version of AskTheEu.org for the local context in Sweden.
Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 31 I personally sent a request during the test at AskTheEu.org and got my answer two days later. The only thing that you need to do is submitting your e-mail and create your own profile. Your information remains anonymous to the public bodies and you can use a pseudonym if you want or need – you have the right to. Then you can ask about whatever public document you want to request and you can also see all similar previous requests and questions. Open Data Day Stockholm 2016 29 Fascinating how easy it now can be to get information out that you did not have any idea about before! In the third workshop we were how to submit local and regional datasets to the Local Open Data Index – the next level of the Open Data Index. Are you interested to help crowdsource? Please do!

The focus was on participation and user input for the projects that Open Knowledge Sweden and Wikimedia Sweden are running.

The featured projects were FrågaStaten.se, Local Open Data Index with both regions and municipalities as well as the project on Connected Open Cultural Heritage Data (Kopplade Öppna Kulturarvsdata) (KÖK) in Swedish.

Then the workshop session started off with some welcoming words and a circle in a check-in letting participants share their names and answer the question: “Why are you here today?”. It was a diverse group of people who had come for different reasons all with diverse backgrounds three short presentations. It then followed with a 10-minute presentation from each featured project explaining their concepts and philosophies, introducing them to participants to get an insight of the projects.
