Engage Project on Open Data

  1. 1. An Infrastructure for Open, Linked Governmental Data Provision towards Research Communities and Citizens<br />Co-funded by the EC under the FP7 – eInfrastructuresProgramme<br />
  2. 2. Rationale<br /><ul><li>Public Sector Information
  3. 3. Vast amounts of data
  4. 4. A new driver for research on many disciplines, both theoretical and applied
  5. 5. Existing Open Data sites and services
  6. 6. Non-standardised metadata, difficult to navigate
  7. 7. National level only
  8. 8. Very few linked data
  9. 9. Citizen participation
  10. 10. Not encouraging citizen engagement, up to now
  11. 11. 2</li></li></ul><li>What is the ENGAGE Concept ?<br /><ul><li>Gathering data from governmental organisations and systems (the Gov Cloud)
  12. 12. Create an open service platform, integrating large amounts of public sector data, processing tools and resources, in support of the research communities dealing with governance and policy modelling, complex systems simulation, public administration transformation, government 2.0, information and communication technologies, future internet and social sciences
  13. 13. Providing PSI to research communities and citizens in a personalised manner
