Government Linked Data Outreach
The purpose of this list is to identify technology policy leaders in governments throughout the world with whom the W3C Government Linked Data Working Group should engage. Engagement with these leaders will serve to a) allow the Government Linked Data Working Group to better understand key technology policy initiatives within that country; and b) identify how to remove obstacles to the adoption of Linked Data by governments and civil society throughout the world.
Guidelines: Technology policy leaders identified should be one or more senior officials responsible for determining the technology policy for a country.
