In Croatia, open data research and research using it are mostly understood as a concept encompassing one discipline and one domain, ignoring the fact that most challenges today necessitate a multidisciplinary and multidomain approach. Recognizing this issue, scientists from Croatia's largest university (Unizg) collaborated with foreign partners from Greece and the Netherlands to develop a completely new approach to open data research and ecosystems in Croatia.
The activities began in October 2019 with the primary goal of increasing the interdisciplinary scientific research activity and innovation capacity of University of Zagreb components in the field of open data. This project involves 39 scientists and associates who are also involved in the development and implementation of the national agenda for the use of open data.
