The rapid rise in ‘apps’ (applications for mobile devices) offer opportunities to disseminate data and services that could be decisive in unlocking PSI reuse. They also present challenges as public and private sector organisations seek to adapt to the rapid pace of change. The meeting aims to provide a forum for decision-makers and their representatives to gain an up-to-date understanding of open data and PSI re-use in Germany, to assess progress in comparison with other EU countries and to focus on the identification of market drivers. It will consider political and administrative competences, the benefits to business and society of open data and PSI reuse, and the need for mechanisms to ensure the sustainability of innovative processes.

In August 2010, the German Federal Government recognised the role of open data in making government more accessible to citizens. The meeting aims to develop key points for an action plan to successfully implement open data policies in Germany that embrace the idea of PSI reuse by design. This, the final meeting of ePSIplatform, follows on from our successful meetings in Stockholm, Madrid and Rennes. The meeting will introduce the follow on project to ePSIplatform commencing in March 2011. All are welcome.

The event is aimed at:

  • Government and public administration representatives nationally, regionally and locally that produce data
  • Stakeholders that reuse data: businesses and their representative associations, NGOs and citizens.
