Get Involved

Frictionless Data is a major project of Open Knowledge International which started as a community-driven effort of Open Knowledge Labs. Community building continues to be a core component of the project: anyone can get involved and contributions are very welcome.

In order to make creating, using, and sharing data as easy and frictionless as possible, we need concrete use cases and feedback from people working across a variety of data-intensive fields:

Let us know. We’d love to hear about it. For examples of what has already been built, see the tools page. For information on where we’re going, see our roadmap.

We're also looking for volunteer "curators" interested in helping us create a set of high quality, useful datasets published as Data Packages.
