2011-05-10 EU, Brussels - Removing the roadblocks to a pan European market for Public Sector Information re-use

Call for Participation. Brussels, 10-11 May 2011. Submit a position paper: Deadline: 21 April 2011. The Digital Agenda for Europe identifies public sector information as an important stimulant for content markets in the EU. It further identifies standards and interoperability as key enablers for the development of new applications. This workshop is organized within the context of Share-PSI.eu, a multistakeholder initiative toward the Digital Agenda for Europe initiated by W3C and ETSI. Workshop results will be presented at the Digital Agenda Assembly in Brussels (16/17 June 2011). The purpose of this workshop is to survey experiences with the re-use of public sector information in Europe and beyond, with a focus on identifying critical obstacles to pan-European interoperability and to the development of pan-European services, and steps to address these obstacles.
