cynaxis is an informal Cyprus-based initiative with a focus on improving civic access to publicly- and privately-held information. We hold that every person should have unencumbered and equal access to the information that shapes their life and their community. We act by amassing data and building civic applications, and by carrying out research in this area.

cynaxis has its roots in the parliament monitor openpatata. openpatata sprang in August 2014 of a desire to shed light on the business of the Cypriot parliament—what is very much inaccessible to the uninitiated—and preceded neavouli, a crowdsourced candidate database, and continuing inquiry into open data in Cyprus.



Collaborators on cynaxis are Chrystalleni, Dimitris and Neofytos.


Our first port of call is the #opendatacyprus room on Matrix. You can also reach out to us directly at We are always looking for more people to collaborate with: to share and develop ideas and pave the way forward for cynaxis.
