Open government data is a powerful tool for economic growth, social benefit, and scientific research. This global resource must be developed and managed in ways that meet the needs of the people and organizations that use it.
CODE brings together data providers and data users to develop better strategies that serve stakeholders and their common goals.
CODE, founded as the Center for Open Data Enterprise, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to maximize the value of open and shared data for the public good. We achieve that mission by working with government agencies, businesses, nonprofits, and researchers who are both data providers and data users.
CODE does this by convening ROUNDTABLES, conducting RESEARCH, and developing RESOURCES.
