The mission of the openpolis foundation is to promote free access to data and information, in order to improve the culture of transparency and democratic participation. This mission means collecting relevant data concerning democracy and information, in order to build a freely accessible data patrimony capable of producing and distributing data-based information.
We analyze data regarding power, politics, economy, territories and local communities. We believe in increasing public awareness on data use, in order to create data-knowledgeable communities. We see technology and data as digital commons. We monitor political power, analyzing traditional institutions and new actors. We think, design, develop and manage data oriented ICT platforms in order to produce information, tell stories, carry out investigations and improve public awareness on specific matters.
