That was the framework of the research “Technical and Economic Factors that Facilitate or Hinder the Implementation of Open Data in the Region”, selected among more than 100 competing proposals. The E-Government Centre of the Technical University Federico Santa María, Chile, was the coordinating institution. The members of the main team were Mauricio Solar, Gastón Concha, and Gonzalo Valdés.
The results, which can be seen by clicking on the link at the end of this page, were presented in different political and academic situations including the 2nd Meeting of Ministers and the 4th Meeting of High Authorities of E-Government, co-organized by Red Gealc in San José, Costa Rica, in November 2012.
Printed material and a CD were edited and distributed among the regional authorities and in events such as the International Conference on Open Data, held in April 2013, also co-organized by Red Gealc.
Furthermore, and permanently, open data precise actions are highlighted in Red Gealc’s web work platform as well as in its national sub-portals of all the member countries of the OAS.
