The two-day training seminar is aimed at providing journalists with a deeper understanding of the sources of open data, the principles of data visualization, data-journalism and open data processing methods. The event also aims to equip journalists with the latest skills on analyzing and filtering large data sets for the purpose of creating a news story. Main drivers for this process are newly available resources such as Open Government and Open Data EGov portals.

Under the guidance of experts from Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, the participants will work together with IT specialists to present six data-projects as the outcome of the practical work. A separate session will be devoted to the practical exercise on data visualization. The project aims to enhance journalistic professionalism and institutional sustainability of media outlets, as well as enhance the demand for open data published by the state authorities.”
