The University of Girona is firmly committed to transparency and new technologies For this reason, all the data that are required to be transparent in accordance with public administration requirements, and other data of interest to citizens relating to the UdG, are made available to everyone in open format.
As established in the new regulations on transparency in public administrations in Catalonia, access to public information has to be in a reusable format, with the aim of improving transparency, generating value for society and promoting interoperability among administrations.
Public information is made available to citizens who can reuse it for any lawful purpose, especially for its reproduction, dissemination and creation of information products or services with added value based on these data.
Publishing research data as open data allows us to guarantee free and universal access, besides ensuring their correct preservation, exploitation, reproduction, dissemination, visibility and impact. In this way we are complying with the requirements of funding bodies such as the European Commission or Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
By using CKAN technology, the UdG wants to facilitate the process of opening up its data and making them available to the public. CKAN is an application that offers tools to streamline the publication of data so they can be shared, searched and used freely.
