Events, hackathons and challenge series - stimulating open data reuse

Facilitators: Amanda Smith, ODI & Simon Whitehouse, Digital Birmingham [paper], Alberto Abella & Emma Beer, OKF. Scribe: Noel van Herreweghe [notes]

“We opened up some data, held a hackathon, fed people pizza, now where are all the cool apps?”

When engaging with the open data community, an organisation may hold an event to achieve one or more of the following aims: data awareness; understanding demand for, and improving the quality of, their datasets; and to encourage the reuse of datasets to create apps and other services.

This session will explore a classification scheme placing these (and other) aims against the sort of activities that organisations might engage in to achieve them.

A rich source of experience in this regard is Apps for Europe, an EU-funded support network with a mission to help turn open data based apps into viable businesses. The project developed a concept named "Business Lounge" which can be deployed at local app contests and hack events across the continent. The concept is focused on accelerating the relationship between developers and investors.

The culmination of these open data events is an International Business Lounge at Future Everything where the best apps, either invited after a local Business Lounge, or selected from an online competition, have the opportunity to pitch their idea to win investment for the future development of their product.

We will use this session to demonstrate to an organisation what they might get out of different activities, and in addition, explore what the blockers might be for ensuring sustainable data reuse following the investment of data publishers and consumers at such events. Reflecting on experiences from Apps for Europe and the Open Data Challenge Series (a programme managed by NESTA and the ODI), we will explore how significant investment in time and resources can create credible services, products and businesses.

What do licenses that promote and don't hinder reuse look like?

Facilitators: Antigoni Trachaliou, National Documentation Center,
Leda Bargiotti, PwC EU Services [paper]
Scribe: Jo Ellis [notes]

This discussion asks whether current licensing practices of open government data hinder its commercial reuse. A crucial principle indicated in open government data policies is that legal rights in publicly owned information must be exercised in a manner that is consistent with and supports the open accessibility and reusability of the data. In particular, where government information and data is protected by copyright, access should be provided under licensing terms which clearly permit its access and reuse. In the context of Action 4.2.5 of the Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) Programme of the European Commission, PwC looked at the current licensing practices for open data across the EU and set a discussion on whether current licensing practices hinder the commercial reuse of open data. This complementes work done in the LAPSI 2.0 project’s Licensing Guidelines, which focuses on the question of the optimal licensing approach based on the best practices of various Member States and the results of previous work conducted by the Legal Aspects of Public Sector Information (LAPSI I and II) projects.

Discussion points

  1. Do current practices on open data licensing conditions hinder reuse?
  2. What re the essential steps throughout the entirety of the life-cycle of PSI, from the moment it is obtained or created by the PSB to the moment it is made available for reuse through a variety of means?
  3. Based on your experience are standard licences more appropriate for the reuse of open data for commercial purposes?
  4. Which conditions are most cumbersome? Can you give some examples?
    1. Giving attribution
    2. Commercial use restrictions
  5. How about Public Domain Dedication?
  6. What are the main consequences of licences that limit reuse of data for noncommercial purposes only?
  7. How does the use of non-commercial provisions affect the reuse of data?
  8. What are the advantages of promoting the reuse of open data for commercial purposes? Who and how can benefit from it? Can you give examples?
  9. Besides the examples identified in the course of our survey, what are additional obstacles that licences create to the commercial reuse of open data? Can you enlist concrete examples?

Multilingual PSI data on the Web

Facilitator: Felix Sasaki, DFKI/W3C
Scribe: Asunción Gómez Pérez [notes]

Why is multilingual PSI data on the Web relevant for you? Reasons may be for example:

  • you provide national PSI with obligations to multiple official languages;
  • you provide national PSI with multilingual requirements in support of inclusion, e.g. social service access for recent immigrants;
  • you provide cross border PSI (e.g. EU, UN, interpol etc) with specific language obligations to member states;
  • you export (economic and/or cultural) PSI with global outreach aspirations.

We will introduce the general topic and provide demos with existing tools. Then we will discuss with you: what benefits do you seen in multilingual PSI data? Have you encountered barriers and issues? Do you have existing solutions or data sets and like them improved, in areas like:

  • cross lingual cataloguing;
  • indexing and search;
  • localisation and machine translation;
  • content analytics for international citizen/patient/learner/research engagement.


  • Introduce general topic (select some monolingual data in various languages, ...), ask general questions for feedback
  • Demos and Q&A
  • Elevator pitch from people on issues with multilingual data? or moving from monolingual into multilingual…. → Eliciting requirements
  • Elevator pitch with current working solutions → invite regional data providers

Facilitator: Miguel García (Zabala Innovation Consulting) [paper]
Scribe: Muriel Foulonneau [notes]
Target audience: SMEs, entrepreneurs or representatives of organisations and networks reaching to them.

The session will facilitate a debate about the generation of business from the reuse of open data in the context of the FINODEX project.

FINODEX, Future Internet Open Data Expansion, is a European Project co-funded by the European Commission that is fostering the creation of innovative services and products based in open data and in the developments coming from other EU projects within the Future Internet Public Private Partnership, FI-PPP.

The FI-PPP has been in charge of the creation of the biggest European platform for developers, FIWARE, which seeks to provide a truly open, public and royalty-free architecture and a set of open specifications that will allow developers, service providers, enterprises and other organizations to develop products that satisfy their needs while still being open and innovative.

FINODEX is an accelerator for SMEs and Web Entrepreneurs from Europe, offering funds and services totally free and under a two open calls scheme. The first of those will be closing on 19th of December and a new one is planned for the spring of 2015.

Within this session, the FINODEX call for proposals will be briefly introduced to open then the conversation about the first call itself, our expectative for new businesses generation thanks to FINODEX, sort out any kind of doubt about the operative of the project and have a debate about the business models that can be attached to open data in a wider sense.

Open Data Startups: Catalyzing open data demand for commercial usage

Facilitator: Amanda Smith & Elpida Prasopoulou, ODI [paper] Martin Alvarez-Espinar, CTIC [paper]
Scribe: Jan Kucera [notes]

A discussion on startup incubation as a way to catalyze the demand-side of open data. Incubating startups that build products and services around open data provides great opportunities to enable the creation of an innovative commercial ecosystem. It also ensures that open data reuse is not limited to innovative ideas but actually contributes to sustainable economic growth. The session will include insights on how to run a successful open data incubation programme focusing on the opportunities and challenges faced by the startups as well as the incubator.

The objective of this session is to discuss in more detail the role of incubation programmes in the promotion of open data innovation for commercial use. During the session, we will briefly present the ODI’s start-up programme, currently in its second year. This will include the following:

  • An outline of the ODI startup programme, focusing on its main objectives but also its commitment to economic, environmental and social impact (triple bottom line)
  • Brief introduction to the startups currently incubating at the ODI. These include: Mastodon C, TransportAPI, 3D Repo, Carbon Culture, Datapress, Demand Logic, I Can Make, Open Bank Project, OpenCorporates, Open Data Soft, Pesky People, Provenance, Resurgence, Spend Network, Opensensors.io.
  • Overview of the programme’s impact and success stories that unlocked value and had significant economic and societal impact.

The discussion will then have to address the following topics of interest:

  • Selecting startups with the potential to achieve economic, environmental and societal impact.
  • Following up from early success stories that unlocked value in order to develop a commercially successful product.
  • Assessing the economic and societal impact of startups/social ventures. Developing metrics beyond market valuation and exits.
  • Opportunities and challenges when building products/services around open data
  • Facilitating the open innovation through the collaboration of startups with big companies. Showcasing the value of open data and catalyzing the publication of open datasets in the commercial sector.
  • Scaling successful products - opportunities for collaborations across the EU.

Steps to a suitable redress mechanism

Facilitatior: Cristiana Sappa (KU Leuven, LAPSI coordinator)
Scribe: Maria Magnolia Pardo, Murcia University [notes]

Discussion on the suitable features of an appropriate redress mechanism related to the access and reuse of PSI including some good and bad European examples.

This session is aimed at pointing out good practices with regards to the PSI framework for institutional embedding and enforcement. Policy makers, the public sector, civil society, businesses and the general public have all broadly accepted the value of public sector information (PSI) for economic growth, public participation and accountability. In many countries, there is a “right to information” and the re-use of PSI and open data are encouraged. When the new PSI directive will be transposed in the Member States of the European Union, citizens and businesses will have a right to re-use information held by public sector bodies.

However, having such a right is not useful, if one cannot enforce it. Therefore, it is essential that the right to re-use PSI is supported by an effective redress mechanism. Criteria to which redress mechanisms should answer have to be identified, to provide the reusers with sufficient guarantees and to ensure that the economic potential of PSI can actually be realised. For each criterion, one or more “good examples” can be described from redress processes already existing in different EU Member States. These examples may serve as inspiration for other organisations or countries when implementing or adapting their redress mechanisms.

Open Data Business Model Generation

Facilitator: Clemens Wass, openlaws.eu, Fatemeh Ahmadi, Insight Centre for Data Analytics [paper]
Scribe: Leda Bargiotti [notes]
Target audience: SMEs, entrepreneurs, open data providers

A discussion about innovative business models that are based on open data and open innovation.

If open data is the new oil, we still have to build cars and roads - any commercial and sustainable exploitation needs innovative business models. We will take a look at real world examples that are already working on the market. In addition, a few sample business model concepts and frameworks will be discussed and analyzed.

Knowing and understanding open data business models will encourage entrepreneurs to use open data. Furthermore, open data providers will get a better understanding of the needs of entrepreneurs (including but not limited to licensing issues, which will be discussed in separate sessions).

About: Dr. Clemens Wass, MBL, MBA has studied law, business law, and entrepreneurship & innovation. He has been working for Sony and Skidata and is now project partner of the EU project openlaws.eu, funded by DG Justice. openlaws.eu is creating an innovative legal information platform based on open data, open innovation and open source software. The project includes the development of a sustainable business model for the openlaws.eu platform.

Fatemeh Ahmadi is a researcher in e-Government unit at Insight Centre for Data Analytics, Galway, Ireland (formerly Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) - a leading research center in Semantic Web and Linked Data research). At Insight Centre, her research addresses the problems exist in Business Models more specifically Open Data Business Model. She has been working on Finnish and Swedish e-Government projects and is an active member of the Swedish Research Network in e-Government and now she is (Insight Centre as the RTD Partner) working on PaaSport Project - the European project developing semantically-enhanced marketplace of interoperable platform-as-a-service offerings for the deployment and migration of business applications of SMEs.

During this session, she will be talking about the 6-V Business Model which claims to be a complete and comprehensive business model in the existing business model literature. Its main improvement and contribution compared to other models is that it seems to cover all the relevant components of a business model and to provide the relationships between the main components through a modeling approach.

Model-Driven Engineering for Data Harvesters

Facilitator: Nikolay Tcholtchev, Fraunhofer FOKUS [paper] [slides]
Scribe: Daniel Pop [notes]

Since its launch in February 2013, the German governmental data platform GovData.DE, has accommodated a large number of datasets. It serves as a metadata hub providing a single point of access to governmental data, whereby the data itself is available over the web portals of the partner institutions, e.g. municipalities, city councils, or federal institutions such as the Federal Statistical Office of Germany.

The metadata is regularly obtained from the Internet platforms of the institutions in question. In order to achieve this, a large number of so-called data harvesters had to be developed, which regularly update the metadata on GovData.DE, based on the data providers’ information. In this session, we will discuss our experiences in developing data harvesters and identify the need for a model-driven approach to the engineering of data harvesters, which at the same time constitutes a potential for various tool providers to sell and commercialize their MDE (model-driven engineering) tools. Furthermore, we argue that the use of MDE based harvesting will improve the quality and timeliness of the provided datasets (including their metadata) and will correspondingly encourage the utilization of Open Data platforms for commercial developments.

Open Data Economy: from ‘Wow’ to ‘How’

Facilitator: Michele Osella, Istituto Superiore Mario Boella [paper]
Scribe: Lorenzo Canova [notes]
Target audience: Entrepreneurs, start-ups, IT professionals, researchers, policy makers.

This highly interactive and cross-disciplinary session calls upon a broad range of stakeholders to debate blind spots still affecting the yearned-for Open Data Economy. As the title suggests, the idea behind this session is to overcome the great deal of initial excitement (‘wow’) – frequently accompanied by a leap of faith about the future to come – in order to get a realistic vision that draws on evidence to distill actionable insights (‘how’). Consequently, the main objective of the session is to portray a neat and up-to-date picture of the multi-faceted mechanisms underlying the creation and appropriation of value from Open Data. Outcomes of the discussions – in the guise of experiences brought by participants, lessons learnt, and guidelines – will represent valuable takeaways for policy makers.

Consequently, the main objective of the session is to portray a neat and up-to-date picture of the multi-faceted mechanisms underlying the creation and appropriation of value from open data. Outcomes of the discussions – in the guise of takeaways, lessons learnt, and guidelines – will be collected and systematized in the “Open Data Economy Primer”, a co-created 5-page essay to be given to policy makers as a present from the “Share-PSI 2.0” community.

Access and Accessibility for Data

Facilitatior: Linda Austere, Providus
Scribe: Maja Lubarda [notes]

Access is the first step one needs to go through when he/she wishes to reuse data. When is access enabled? Is there a difference between access and accessibility? What about accessible data that cannot downloaded nor reused: are they really open?

Reuse of government information naturally requires access to the information. However, the PSI Directive itself does not oblige Member States to provide access. This can be explained by the fact that the legislative competences of the EU to regulate access to public sector information within a national setting. The PSI Directive applies to documents that are already made publicly accessible under the national rules for access to documents (art. 1(3) PSI Directive). It does not add to them or change them. An important improvement of the PSI Directive as amended in 2013 is that it requires rather than invites Member States to allow the re-use of documents of information that can be accessed under national access regimes (art. 3(1) PSI Directive). Effective access is a conditio sine qua non for re-use. This session discusses the relationship between Directive 2003/98/EC (PSI Directive) and national access regimes and the methods by which good practices can be identified and structured with rights of access to data. Good practices have an effect on the three main aspects: data must be discoverable (what information is held by which organisation?), available (public under FOIA, at reasonable terms and prices) and usable (meeting user needs, e.g. as regards format, timeliness, etc.).

Roadblocks in Commercial Open Data Usage

Facilitator: Ingo Keck, Centre for Advanced Data Analytics Research [paper]
Scribe: Martin Alvarez-Espinar [notes]

What keeps people from using Open Data for commercial purposes? Find out what happens in the mind of an entrepreneur by developing a business plan for a fictive open data based product!

One big problem in the field of open data is that there is a fundamental difference in the mind sets between the people that are in charge of opening up government data, i.e. civil servants with very high job security, and people who want to create a business on top of it, i.e. the commercial users. The idea of this session is to get the participants to understand what drives commercial users and what are the special restrictions they have to adjust to if they want to successfully make money out of open data. The session will focus on subjects that hinder commercial open data usage and that can be seen as risks that are involved for business users.

COOLTURA: scalable services for cultural engagement through the cloud

Facilitators: Nikolay Tcholtchev, Fraunhofer FOKUS [paper] [slides]
Scribe: Peter Krantz [notes]

Although culture is a very important asset of population the engagement of citizens with their cultural heritage environment still remains low. Coupled with the efforts of Cultural Heritage institutions with access to digital content for actively encouraging learning, debate, action and interaction of culture consumption, the European project TAG CLOUD explores the use of cloud-based technologies that lead to adaptability and personalisation to promote lifelong engagement with Culture.

Within the context of this project, user centered evaluations as well as scenarios and use cases have been developed to thrive the COOLTURA Platform and COOLTURA App. This session presents the introduction to COOLTURA by TAG CLOUD, the creation of an intelligent layer based on harvesting tools as the key approaches allowing the building of personalized visualization and social interaction services.

The aim of the COOLTURA workshop session is to facilitate discussion and interaction to share experience and knowledge for increasing the usability of eGov standardized cultural content (especially digital cultural content from public sector or domain) for non-commercial and commercial purposes. The COOLTURA platform aims at fostering the creation of innovative services and software developments for supporting not only cultural engagement but also a set of business models that extend over the cultural heritage environment.

The Central Role of Location

Facilitator: Facilitator: Raquel Saraiva (DGT), Ingo Simonis (OGC)
Scribe: Jens Klessmann [notes]

It is widely agreed that data is becoming a more and more valuable resource in today's economy. Data can enable the creation of added value in various forms — new innovative data-based services, new businesses and jobs, more accurate information for citizens, companies and governments, better transparency of public sector operation, citizen participation and other aspects. For this potential to be unlocked and realised, relevant institutions need to provide strong leadership in both policy making and practical terms.

While the legislative basis for sharing public sector information and opening data is in place, implementing regulations are often not in force, nor are best practices established or followed. It is important that public sector institutions, which own and govern substantial amounts of data and have enough authority to promote data reuse, lead and initiate the creation of data services ecosystems to attract and encourage commercial developers.

TheINSPIRE directive has been put in place to help to address the environmental challenges our society faces nowadays. The directive states that geospatial data and location information shall be made publicly available for government agencies, industry and the broader public. Sharing and reuse of this public sector information is one of the goals of the directive.

In the previous years there have been tremendous efforts to unlock this data and many EU member states have implemented open data strategies within their countries. Many EU funded projects have been addressing the interoperable usage of INSPIRE data. This has helped the implementation phase of INSPIRE to reach a level of maturity which allows third parties to build business models on the data and generate revenue.

In this session we want to address various questions around location data that are currently being discussed in the Maintenance and Implementation Group (MIG) of the community around INSPIRE. We want to facilitate communication and a dialogue about good practices and examples for reuse of location and geo data in other disciplines:

  • use and uptake of data by SMEs;
  • policy concerns addressed in the MIG;
  • examples of EU funded projects for the broader use of INSPIRE data (ELF, Europa (Insurance, Re-Insurance);
  • test environments for interoperability of INSPIRE data and services.

We invite data providers, implementors, experts and users to share their experience related to location data and information, re-use policies for open data and uptake for innovative businesses.

The most known challenges of PSI Access and Re-USE: Intellectual Property (and Data Protection)

Facilitatior: Freyja van den Boom
Scribe: Lorenzo Canova [notes]

IPR is traditionally perceived as a tool for development; however they reveal to be an obstacle for an easy access and reuse of PSI. The same goes for Privacy and Personal Data protection rules. How can we overcome these challenges?

The discussion is aimed at identifying best practices on legal rules, contractual transfers of rights and other issues in the area of public sector works in different European Union countries. A particular attention is devoted to cultural institutions legal rules and practices as well. More precisely, this session focusses on three different levels of the public sector works production and circulation:

  1. legal rules on protectability of works;
  2. legal rules and contractual practices on rights ownership;
  3. legal rules and other practices implemented within the cultural institutions.

The LAPSI 2.0 network can share its experience in identifying some good practices, based on a questionnaire that was prepared and answered by the partners of the network. In particular, the LAPSI 2.0 network identified some best legal rules on protectability of public sector information eligible for copyright protection, some good and bad legal rules on rights ownership of PSI covered by copyright protection and some best practices on the transfer of such rights. In the area of cultural institutions the LAPSI 2.0 network identified some best practices as to the metadata exploitation, access and re-use to cultural content.

Boosting Open Data Re-Use and Business

Facilitator: Miroslav Konecny, Addsen/COMSODE [paper] Harris Alexopoulos, University of the Aegean/Gov4All [paper]
Scribe: Benedikt Kaempgen [notes]

The project COMSODE is an SME-driven RTD project aimed at progressing the capabilities in the Open Data re-use field. The concept is an answer to barriers still present in this young area: data published by various open data catalogues are poorly integrated; quality assessment, and cleansing are seldom addressed. Data consumers have to integrate the data before they can use them which increases significantly the costs of open data consumption and hinders open data usage and uptake, etc.

Gov4All is a Marketplace towards enhancing open data re-use through collaboration. It identifies the already made solutions and patterns on the way open data is used now by providing lists and catalogues for open data, open services and apps using open data, as well as, an open space for collaboration and feedback mechanisms. Finally, Gov4All enables the introduction of new solutions and new material by its users complying to its metadata schema in each category.

Main barriers identified and topics for discussion at the Share-PSI workshop

  • Missing clear message for investors and eterpreneurs – numbers, business models and good examples that convince to put efforts and investments into open data services.
    • How to promote best practice of commercial cases?
    • What business models can reveal the value of Open Data?
    • What market potential numbers are credible (when certainly talking about disruptive approach to information management!)?
  • Critical mass of quality open data is still not available - It is note easy to find the right dataset. There are islands of dataset groups (catalogues, national servers) but crossinformation is missing. COMSODE contributes by its activities to solve this problem.
    • How much Open Data is needed to create critical mass with commercial value?
    • How to interling available datasets and enable their cross-use?
    • What quality is needed for commercial applications?
  • Do you know other initiatives in your country?
  • What are the most important characteristics of such an initiative?
  • What other functionality this site could have?
  • Should these initiatives target international?

Open Market Dilemmas

Dietmar Gattwinkel, Saxony Open Government Data [paper]
Scribe: Sebastian Sklarß, ]init[ [notes]

The Deloitte Study Market assessment of public sector information for the UK Department for Business, Information and Skills identifies datamarketplaces and data enrichment as important business models utilizing open data. However these business models and open data policies geared towards them face a couple of dilemmas often overlooked.

For example:

  • Attribution vs. trade secrets
    • How can one protect ones business from the risk of "attribution leakage?"
    • Which licenses in which areas carry such risk?
    • Are there examples of Open Data Policies addressing such risks?
  • Privacy vs. information density
    • How does anonymization affect the usefulness/value of open data?
    • Which anonymization techniques diminish the values more than necessary, which retain more information density?
    • Is the perceived "mosaic effect" a potential barrier to more open data?
    • Do we need regulation (e.g. by certification) which companies or types of
  • Technical restriction prohibition and share alike vs. monetization of added value
    • Which licenses in which areas carry such risk?
    • Are there examples of Open Data Policies addressing such risks?
    • What should businesses sell: The enriched data or rather the service of enriching the data, or even applications for enriching data?
