The Open Data Institute (ODI) launched in December. The non-profit, as the name suggests, works with open data – which can be a source of stories for journalists.

Founded by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and web academic Nigel Shadbolt, the government has pledged £10 million of funding to the ODI.

The ODI runs free lunchtime lectures on a Friday and makes the slides and audio available.

Journalism.co.uk attended the first lecture, which was on open health data, an area of interest to health reporters (the notes on the health data lecture are at this link).

The audio of most of the lectures is on SoundCloud. More information on the lectures and the slides are at this link.

Journalism.co.uk runs a one-day course in partnership with the ODI. See details of the course which is an introduction to open data for journalists.
