Extracts from the press conference by Neelie Kroes on the Open Data Strategy for Europe

54 views

Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of the Digital Agenda, held a press conference on the Open Data Strategy for Europe launched by the European Commission on 12 December 2011. The Open Data Strategy for Europe is expected to deliver a 40 billion euro boost to the EU's economy each year. Europe’s public administrations are sitting on a goldmine of unrealised economic potential: the large volumes of information collected by numerous public authorities and services. Member States such as the United Kingdom and France are already demonstrating this value. The strategy to lift performance EU-wide is three-fold: firstly the Commission will lead by example, opening its vaults of information to the public for free through a new data portal. Secondly, a level playing field for open data across the EU will be established. Finally, these new measures are backed by the 100 million euro which will be granted in 2011-2013 to fund research into improved data-handling technologies.
