Last weekend I was part of the organization committee of the very first Data Expedition made in Barcelona also formed by Karma Peiro, Concha Català, Eduard Martin Borregon and Diego Pascual.

The event, organized within the context of the Open Knowledge Foundation in Spain was dedicated to the study of the Department of Health of the catalan government.

The main goal of the Data Expeditions promoted by the School of Data of the  OKFN is to create interdisciplinary groups formed by journalists and engineers to create stories out of data. 

This first experiment has proved the benefits of merging disciplines that were completely unrelated a few years ago such as journalism and computer science (data analysis, or whoever you want to call it) leading to very interesting results such as the timeline created by a group that studied the relation between a foundation and a private company in the sector of biomedics.
