BBC Agrees To Open Up Its Data
"The BBC has pledged to collaborate with the Open Data Institute (ODI), Open Knowledge Foundation, the Mozilla Foundation and the Europeana Foundation in making its data available to the masses. The public service broadcaster signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with the four non-profit organisations at its London headquarters on Monday. In the future, it could apply ODI Open Data Certificates to all information it releases as part of this partnership. 'Our agreement with the BBC is a great step towards the provision of open access to one of our nation’s greatest cultural assets. We look forward to building upon these relationships,' said Stuart Coleman, commercial director at the ODI. The ODI has also signed agreements with the multinational architectural and engineering services firm Arup and business advisory firm Deloitte."
