Uses of Open Data Within Government for Innovation and Efficiency

You are warmly invited to participate in the first of a series of workshops being organized during this year and next by the Share-PSI 2.0 Thematic Network. Partners from 25 countries are working on issues surrounding the implementation of the European Commission's revised PSI Directive and this will feed into the Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group.

We're beginning with "Uses of Open Data Within Government for Innovation and Efficiency" – i.e. we're looking for cases where opening data has made it easier for government departments (local or national) to do their job better. What worked? What didn't work? What lessons can you share with others? What would most help you benefit from other people's work?

The workshop is taking place as part of the 5th Samos Summit on ICT-Enabled Governance which means participants can look forward to spending time on a beautiful island in the Aegean sea, formerly the home of Pythagoras.

Entry is by position paper which should not be a full academic paper, rather, a short description of what you'd like to talk about.

Deadline for submissions: 13 April
Notification of acceptance: 1 May
Workshop: 30 June – 1 July
