Data is becoming more and more important in society. At Fontys University of Applied Sciences, School of ICT, students get educated to master topics like data analysis, data management and so on. In many cases the data to practice upon are artificially created. Using real life data in some cases is already happening, but these are closed data sets coming from private companies. Inspired by the work of Atenas and Havemann, a study is performed to find out about the side effects of using available open governmental data sets.

In the session the approach and results and lessons learned of this (currently running) study will be presented.
