Devon is now home to an Open Data Institute (ODI) Node, which will work with councils, emergency services, community organisations, business and citizens across the county to improve innovation and boost transparency in every sector.

The ODI Devon Node is designed to support new projects and businesses that use the power of Open Data, bringing together regional innovations with the best examples from around the world. ODI Devon’s initial focus will be on building new partnerships around key strengths such as environment and climate data, but the Node will also be looking to develop exciting new collaborations between rural and urban initiatives.

ODI Devon is hosted by Service Design agency Redfront, in partnership with Devon County Council. Redfront’s international networks will help to provide new perspectives and partnership opportunities for the Node, while further developing its research projects around data and Service Design.

Simon Gough, Director at Redfront, said: “We are delighted to be working with the ODI and our founding partners at Devon County Council. Creating the first rural county node will be an exciting challenge, and together we believe that there are huge opportunities to develop new projects, services and knowledge around some important issues.”

Richard Stirling, International Director at the ODI said: “We welcome ODI Devon to the ODI node network. We are very much looking forward to seeing the impact it makes in promoting understanding about open data across the Westcountry and beyond.”
