Help make economics more open!

The Open Economics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation is an informal, community-organized group working to ensure economics is built on sound, transparent foundations. We’re looking for people, especially students, to get involved with the working group and its projects.

Get involved!

The Open Economics WG is driven by the contributions of volunteers like you. We are not only looking for coders or economists but are open to all who are enthusiastic about data: If you would like to explore the different ways in which you can participate, please join our mailing list or contact us at

We are hosting a Skype meetup to take stock and discuss future projects on the:

23rd of June, 7 pm GMT+1 (British Summer Time [!])

and would like to invite you to join in – please drop a mail to along your Skype ID so we can add you to the session.
