Room A, 16/06/2011 (10:00-13:30)

The workshop will bring together stakeholders to help the Commission develop its strategy for open data for the EU, taking into consideration the review of the Public Sector Information Directive (Digital Agenda action 3). Governments are increasingly recognising the benefits of making their data open and reusable. The wide availability of Public Sector Information can be a key driver to develop content markets in Europe, which can generate new businesses and jobs and provide consumers with more choice and more value for money.

The workshop will build on the results of Share-PSI.eu, a multi-stakeholder initiative initiated by W3C and ETSI which is holding a first workshop in Brussels on 10-11 May 2011.

Linked to Big Idea 3 (Beyond raw data: public sector information, done well).

Draft Programme

Governments are increasingly recognising the benefits of making their data open and reusable. The wide availability of Public Sector Information (PSI) can be a key driver to develop content markets in Europe, which can generate new businesses and jobs and provide consumers with more choice and value for money.

One objective of the Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) is to facilitate the wider deployment and more effective use of digital technologies to enable Europe to address its key challenges and provide Europeans with a better quality of life, for example, by opening up access to content.

This workshop will bring together data/PSI holders, technology providers and potential re-users to facilitate an exchange of views, to support the definition of requirements (technical interoperability, data management, strategy), to promote the pan-European added value of data portals, to deploy data initiatives and enhance synergies between them.

The workshop will build on the results of Share-PSI.eu, a multi-stakeholder initiative initiated by W3C and ETSI which is holding a first workshop in Brussels on 10-11 May 2011.
