There are a number of organisations in the open data arena, all of which are working to explore and utilise the benefits of open data. Many are also working to establish standardised approaches to managing the data, therefore enabling it to be shared and aggregated to create larger and more powerful datasets.
These organisations include:
- Gateway to Research
- Linked Universities
- Open Data Institute
- The JISC Monitoring Unit
- The Open Knowledge Foundation
- BIS Data Strategy Board
- euroCRIS - Common European Research Information Format (CERIF)
- Open Data User Group
- Higher Education Statistics Agency
- Efficiency Exchange
