    • on Open Data “ I believe governments should embrace open data .” 05/04/2011 “ We are here to serve citizens [...] what could be better than handing them back the data already gathered on their behalf, to use and develop as they see fit. ” 16/06/2011 Also see Neelie’s blog post on open data 13/05/2011 http://bit.ly/NeelieKroesEU , @NeelieKroesEU

    • on Open Access http://bit.ly/NeelieKroesEU , @NeelieKroesEU “ Access to scientific results for free, for all, for ever is a compelling vision indeed.” 06/04/2011 “ The question is no longer ‘if’ we should have open access. The question is about ‘how’ ” 02/12/2010 “ Scientific information has the power to transform our lives for the better – it is too valuable to be locked away. ” 06/10/2010

    • Clear Principles... Maximise public benefit from public information through widest dissemination for re-use by paying for collection, not for access and by driving down costs of dissemination
    • Why? Business Models (private and public) Others' rights (e.g. author/publisher) How? Different instruments Introduction over time Some exceptions make sense ...Require a Pragmatic Approach
