On March 28, 2013, the City of Athens in partnership with EurActiv.gr hosted special Citadel on the Move Workshop for city administrators. The workshop featured Citadel partners as well as Open Data experts in Greece, and was specifically designed to answer local level questions about Open Data. Julia opened up the forum with a keynote address on Citadel on the Move in which she showcased the way in which Citadel is working to provide local officials with best practice guidelines for opening data sets along with mobile application templates to kick start local innovation. The workshop was marked by lively discussion and exchange in which participants often stressed the challenges of convincing colleagues that opening data is worth the investment of time and resource. Julia stressed that the key factor behind Citadel’s creation of mobile application templates that can be used in a cross border context was the desire to help local government showcase immediate business and service benefits to their cities.
