Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A new kind of activity – fuelled by the capabilities that not only modern Web technologies offer, but also as a change in social practices and expectations – has recently become the centre of much attention and discussion; it involves the curation and publication of Government data in free, open format. Open Government is set to become a major aspect of how citizens and governments communicate and share information with each other.

In this paper, we examine impact of Open Data on the UK government. By exploring the social and technical developments, an analysis of the underlying structure and processes is performed; and the adoption of Open Data within the UK Government and its impact to the digital economy is discussed.
