Apps for Europe ‘Turning Data into Business’ is een thematisch netwerk dat competities rondom open data organiseert, winnaars stimuleert om eigen ondernemingen te starten en daarmee zoveel mogelijk sociaaleconomische impact tracht te genereren. Het project draagt bij aan het opendatabeleid van de Europese Commissie en stimuleert het hergebruik van overheidsinformatie en wetenschappelijke en culturele bronnen.

In Apps for Europe bundelen 19 partners uit 10 Europese landen hun kennis, expertise en netwerken op het gebied van het openstellen van data, het organiseren van competities en het stimuleren van ondernemerschap. Kennisland is een van de partners. 

Hieronder de originele uitnodigingstekst:
