The Transparency International EU, in its commitment to root out political corruption in the EU , recently launched EU Integrity Watch. This platform is a central hub for online tools, making use of the various open data sources, which allow citizens, journalists and civil society to monitor the integrity of the EU.

Daniel Freund from TI EU will present the latest version of EU Integrity Watch, along with other practitioners from the field, to showcase what open government could mean for the EU and provide concrete examples from monitoring lobbying, conflicts of interest, outside incomes and activities of politicians.

The main objective of this session will be to demonstrate what is already possible using available open data and at the same time to point out what else is needed. This is based on the fundamental conviction that open information is meaningful only in as much as citizens and others can make use of it.

The presentation is meant to lead into an open exchange about the possible opportunities and limitations of civic tech and open data while inspiring others by discussing first-hand experiences.
