Opendatasoft organized a webinar with Steven Adler from the Ocean Data Alliance to discuss how data can lead to better services and products and contribute to the well-being of the oceans.

About This Webinar

The oceans cover 70 percent of our planet. They generate most of the world’s oxygen and contribute food, jobs, wealth, and joy to billions of people. But the oceans are also under great pressure from pollution, habitat destruction, and climate change. The need for more data and solutions is pressing, and open data plays a pivotal role in enhancing our understanding of the ocean for the benefit of business, science, and society.

At Opendatasoft, we work with leading corporations, universities, governments, and scientific organizations to build open data and data sharing solutions at scale. This webinar will give you a better understanding of the motivations, which spur companies and public actors to share data as well as of the results that they have achieved. Ultimately, you will be better equipped to build a data-driven culture within your organization and your industry.


You Will Learn:

  • How sharing data can generate huge value for public and private organizations.

  • Why data sharing practices should start from within your organization and how they can benefit your organization’s goals.

  • How you can use data to create better products and services in your specific field, including industries related to water, ocean, resilience, and beyond.
