OpenData: apps for everyone? Opportunities and challenges in the re-use of public sector information
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.
