Welcome to UoE Open Knowledge Network

Welcome to the University of Edinburgh Open Knowledge Network!  UoE OKN is an informal network to draw together the University’s strategic policies and activities in the area of Open Data, Open Access, Open Education, Open Research, Open Collections and Archives.

Over the course of the next six months the Network will run a series of free event and activities to support cross-fertilisation of ideas and promote the institution’s open knowledge activities.

The Open Knowledge Network is run by Lorna Campbell, LTW, and Ewan Klein, Informatics, together with colleagues from across the University.  The project is funded with a grant from the Information Services Innovation Fund.
