2.    Impact: Understand the potential of open data re-use, how to measure it, and how to monitor its impact. 
3.    Technology: Dive into the technicalities behind open data portals, learn how they work, and how to create an open data ecosystem for real-time, geospatial, and citizen-generated data. 
4.    Quality: Discover how to facilitate data discoverability, create access to data by harvesting meta-data, and work with high-quality data and various standards. 

You can participate in webinars and training courses or check out the learning materials individually at your own pace.
