Commendation ceremony will be held for "2nd Japan Open Data Award" and "Open Data Application Contest"
We had held "Open Data Application Contest" in order to promote the open data. It was co-hosted by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
From among the 92 entries, we have decided to award work by a strict examination.
And, the Utilization and Promotion Committee has been evaluating open data initiatives collected by the Committee Office to select ones worth an award under its arbitrary awarding program "2nd Japan Open Data Award".
Awardees are invited to the awarding ceremony scheduled as part of the Utilization and Promotion Committee meeting at Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc. from 10:00 to 12:00 on March 13, 2014.
※Other people than Consortium members and the media are not permitted to attend the ceremony due to the reasons ascribed to the venue. Instead, the ceremony will be broadcast on the Internet.
