Jonathan Gray is Operations Manager at the Open Knowledge Foundation - which is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2004 and dedicated to promoting open knowledge in all its forms. It is a European leader in this field and prominent on the international stage.

He studied Philosophy at Cambridge University, Social Sciences at the Open University and is currently doing research at Royal Holloway, University of London. He has a background in the library sector. As well as being invited to speak at numerous events, he recently sat on the programme committees of I-SEMANTICS '08, Graz and Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2008), Beijing, and is currently on the programme committee for the First Open Source GIS UK Conference, University of Nottingham. He is co-ordinating the EU-funded 4th COMMUNIA Workshop on "Accessing, Using and Reusing Public Sector Content and Data".

He has run several domain specific workshops on how people find and re-use the material they work with, specifically looking at CKAN - an open-source, community driven tool for resource discovery developed by the Open Knowledge Foundation. More generally he has a strong interest in how new internet technologies are being integrated into the existing work patterns of researchers and practitioners in different fields.
