So what we are going to do with all this data?
Finland is known as an information society, but in today’s world of fast moving media we are in constant need of new ideas and solutions to source and use open data. We want to inspire people to use all the information in hand. Måndag and Forum Virium organised Apps4Finland event and competition that aimed to find and showcase new, inspiring ways to leverage open data. The best applications, visualisations, pieces of data journalism, algorithms or other works related to open data have been awarded annually since 2009. In 2014, the prize pool was over 40,000 euros.
