The creator of the World Wide Web is backing a UK institute that will advise on how to make the most of government data.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee will co-direct the Open Data Institute (ODI) that aims to open its doors in September.
The ODI will study the best ways to exploit the growing amounts of data being made public by the government.
It will train people to use the data in business and advise on what kinds of information should be released.
