Research Data KE Working Group

The Research Data KE Working Group is interested in the intersection between open data technologies, digital humanities and research data practices in Kenya and working towards more equitable and inclusive systems of knowledge production and infrastructure by/in/for Kenya. This working group was born out of an event entitled "Archiving Kenya's Past and Futures" (more details here) held at one of the oldest libraries in the country on November 12, 2019. The group is comprised of researchers, archival specialists, librarians, open data technologists, NGO and government representatives.
