Albanian Institute of Science participates at the OGP Dialogue for Western Balkans

On 10- 11 September AIS participated at the Open Government Partnership Dialogue for Western Balkans. The main purpose of the event was the exchange of experiences and the consolidation of policies on the well-functioning of Open Government Partnership. AIS as a non-profitable and non-governmental organizations through Open Data Albania project has contributed not only to the implementation of OGP principles, but also in establishing good models for open government. As a member of the OGP Albanian Coalition, AIS took part at the Open Data panel that aimed to explore the benefits and challenges of opening up public data in the Western Balkan countries. In addition, AIS has implemented a unique model of open data catalogue where the opening up of governmental data is an initiative of civil society and not of the government itself.
