This figure illustrates the conceptual approach to this POPSIS study. As pointed out above, the purpose of this study is to assess different models of charging for PSI and their effects based on in-depth public sector body case studies across Europe. Each POPSIS case studies intends to provide solid evidence on the socio-economic impact of the pricing policy by the PSB under scope – both downstream and upstream. The downstream impact side refers to PSI charging policy effects on re-users and end-users. It involves the gathering of market data such as the number of re-users, the FTEs employed by re-users, the emergence of new products such as PSI-based apps or the sales revenues and volumes of re-users. The upstream impact side refers to PSI charging policy effects on the public sector body itself. The PSB impact measurement includes indicators such as the availability of PSI, the quality of the provided PSI, the FTEs employed by the PSB, the provision of new products such as PSI-based apps by the PSB as well as the costs and returns from PSI re-use facilitation for the PSB. Ultimately, the cross-case study analysis should give some indication with regard to the question: “Which PSI charging model works best?”
In the following, we present the main findings from the case studies and the cross-case study analysis.
