  • Last december, in 2011, the European Commission announced its new Open Data strategy, including its own open data portal, spreading the policy of providing open data across Europe and backing this process with €100 million for related research.\nIn this context, the European Commission’s vice president, Neelie Kroes, is quoted to say “...”.\nThis nicely sets the stage for this breakout session.\nSo, Neelie Kroes says “Your data is worth more if you give it away.” - I would go one step further and say ...

  • We have an agenda for today. You will get to hear a number of different speakers from different LATC project members.\nI’ll quickly talk you through the agenda, and then I’ll introduce the individual speakers before their talks.\n
