In 2002, the Commission set up an expert group on Public Sector Information (PSI Group) with the aim to exchange good practices and any initiatives supporting public sector information re-use.

The aim of the PSI Group is to

  • Exchange good practices and initiatives supporting public sector information re-use.
  • Discuss and recommend solutions to challenges such as charging, exclusive agreements, development indicators for measuring public sector information and technology.

The PSI Group consists of representatives of the 28 Member States. Private sector organisations and PSI experts are regularly invited to the meeting on an ad-hoc basis.
List of members 


As a sub-group to the PSI Group a working group on the pan-European open data portal has been created to discuss issues related to the dissemination of public datasets online, including the development of a pan-European open data portal.
