Why a European event on the local Open Data and Reuse?

http://www.epsiplatform.eu

Everywhere in Europe, member states and local authorities are committing themselves to open up their public data. What does this mean? It gives the opportunity to others (administrations, entrepreneurs, NGOs, citizens, researchers) to reuse the vast amount of data national and local authorities produce in their daily business: geographical, statistical, transport, service information and so on. What for? To improve the services delivered to the citizens or to envisage new ones, to raise new knowledge, to enrich the public debate.

In France, Rennes appears to be the pioneer city on this issue, soon to be caught up by Bordeaux, Montpellier, Paris... However, what is currently happening elsewhere in Europe? What are the flagship initiatives? What are the difficulties faced and the problems to solve? How do we reach value creation for all?
During a one-day event, we aim at sharing local experiences and good practices, encouraging synergies and creating a European dynamic around the Open Data issue. By sharing initiatives and gathering strengths, leverages for action will emerge.

Rennes is hosting this meeting as a follow on from the event held in Madrid, June 2010. It is organized by Greater Rennes, the Region of Bretagne and co-ordinated with Fing, ePSIplatform, GFII, PSI Alliance and e-mégalis.

During a one-day event, we aim at sharing local experiences and good practices, encouraging synergies and creating a European dynamic around the Open Data issue. By sharing initiatives and gathering strengths, leverages for action will emerge. Rennes is hosting this meeting as a follow on from the event held in Madrid, June 2010.

  • 5. www.epsiplatform.eu Hôtel de Rennes Métropole, 4 Avenue Henri Fréville, Rennes, France About the Partners Greater Rennes The recent technological evolution around the mobile Internet will foster changes in usages as well as new forms of relationships between the citizens and the authorities, between citizens and elected representatives. To answer this new and increasing demand, Rennes, as a pioneer in France, has decided to anticipate the upcoming movement and to broadly free its public data. To speed up the movement, Rennes is currently launching a contest untitled "Free access to Rennes" with €50.000-worth awards. The release of public data and the creation of innovative services by citizens, raise questions on a future governance where the citizen is the user and the citizen becomes a producer of services and information systems. Does it represent a loss of power for public authorities or on the contrary does it foster a greater transparency? Does it build the basis for a co-produced city, a greater collaborative and open dynamic with citizens? Is it the beginning of a new form of governance? These questions and others are the ones we, including elected representatives, will have to tackle to fit with the increasing and ineluctable demand from users and citizens. This is above all a great opportunity to engage citizens in a participative approach based on co- design, dedicated to the living together that we all look for. It enables to put digital technologies in the service of a social dynamic. It also deals with the belief in the creative intelligence of territorial lifeblood. The Region of Brittany With its project ‘Digital Brittany ‘, the region wants to make sure each citizen gets access to the new services and usages digital technologies offer, to prevent the social and territorial divide and to promote a balanced demography between the Region’s areas as well as equal access to public services. To be consistent with its sustainable agenda (Agenda 21), the Region of Brittany aims to facilitate the use of public data by citizens and economic stakeholders and encouraging service innovation using public data. After its geographic data, the Region is considering opening its transport information. The Region of Brittany supports this new dynamic and would like to raise elected representatives’ awareness at a regional level on the issues connected to opening public data. www.rennes-metropole.fr www.bretagne.fr
  • 6. www.epsiplatform.eu Hôtel de Rennes Métropole, 4 Avenue Henri Fréville, Rennes, France La FING For the past 10 years, Fing has been helping private businesses, public sector institutions and national territories to anticipate changes inspired by technology and its uses. It has built a new kind of think tank, whose efforts are widely recognized throughout Europe and beyond. Within the framework of its program "2.0" cities, Fing (Foundation Internet new generation) showed how much cities, to ensure a sustainable economic and social development, needed to release the forces of innovation on their territory: public companies, associations, actors and citizens. During 2010, Fing has been committed to a national campaign to open of public data in collaboration with several localities and actors (innovators, public actors, service providers). Fing explores the transformational potential of technologies, when it is placed in millions of hands. Its objective is to increase the innovating capacity of the economic framework and all of society. ePSIplatform The European Public Sector Information Platform is a European Union funded project aimed at releasing the potential value of public sector information across Europe. The team works with both the PSI re-use community and the open data community and is committed to the opening up of public sector information. ePSIplatform manages an interactive website which reports developments, monitors progress and publicises events. Visitors to the website are encouraged to contribute their knowledge, their ideas and also learn more about public sector information. GFII Created in 1979, GFII is a French association, composed of public and private players of the information and knowledge industry. One of its working groups gathers together professional experts in reuse of public information. Its missions: to encourage and assist the public producers in order to promote the dissemination of their data, taking into account the economic conditions of all parties. www.epsiplatform.eu www.fing.org www.gfii.asso.fr
  • 7. www.epsiplatform.eu Hôtel de Rennes Métropole, 4 Avenue Henri Fréville, Rennes, France PSI Alliance The PSI Alliance was established in order to encourage the public sector to maintain a trading environment that is fair and equitable, in particular in relation to the licensing and re-use of public sector information (PSI). Members are private sector companies and associations who are committed to working with PSI holders towards the maintenance and development of a vibrant, information-driven EU economy that ultimately works to the benefit of the public sector, private sector and the end consumer. e-mégalis Created in 1999, the joint commission e-mégalis Brittany is a federative organisation that gathers 77 members representing 835 towns out of the 1238 in Brittany, the Region of Brittany, the 4 department councils, 9 metropolitan areas, 1 urban area, 59 communities of towns, 3 towns (Dinard, Landerneau, Quiberon). In 2006, the organization created a regional platform of e-administration, namely e-mégalis, a one-stop shop for digitalized services benefiting the local authorities and public organizations in Brittany. The platform favours the development of e-administration uses and services to all of Brittany's area, in compliance with the founding principles of territorial cooperation and resource sharing. The first service created on the platform has been the regional online room for public procurement that now involves 534 public entities using it and about 15.000 recorded industries. Other compulsory and legal services are offered on the platform to e-mégalis members such as: the remote transmission of legal or accounting documents, the electronic certificates and so on. On 10 December 2010, e-mégalis is organising in Pacé (Ille-et-Villaine) the first e-administration gathering in Brittany.
