This event is organised by the 6Aika Open Data and Interfaces spearhead project in which the six largest cities in Finland – Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Tampere, Turku and Oulu – cooperate to release their data resources as open data as extensively as possible and to create a favourable environment for collaboration between data producers and data users. The project is part of the larger 6Aika Six City Strategy which aims to help major Finnish cities to take steps together towards open and smart services.
