Open Knowledge Belgium is ran by a board of 9 directors, daily management of 4 people and our organisation has currently 1 employee (we’re hiring though).

If you would like to have your activities under our wing, please contact us at our mailinglist.

This is the official website of the legal entity called Open Knowledge Belgium. Were you looking for our Open Belgium conference instead?
