  8. 8. The Challenge  People think that it is “done”  Benefits of what has already been done will take time to emerge  Sustainability involves more resources – financial, institutional, legislative, political, than initial launch  “Competitors” are getting better – the target is moving 8
  9. 9. Main Themes of World Bank paper Three main recommended themes for next phase:  Use Open Data for Economic Growth and Business Innovation  Build Open Data “Ecosystem”  Ensure Technical Excellence in Open Data delivery 9
  10. 10. Economic Growth and Business Innovation  Release data valuable for re-use  Release data which businesses request  Extend release beyond Government Ministries  Ensure continuity of supply  Prioritise “core reference data”  Ensure fine-grained, disaggregated data 10
  11. 11. Build Open Data “Ecosystem” (1)  Open the “last mile” of public services  Make portal(s) collaborative and demanddriven  Use official metadata and user tagging to improve search and findability  Reach out to entrepreneurs and innovators  Build knowledge networks 11
  12. 12. Build Open Data “Ecosystem” (2)  Support and incubate innovation  Involve the academic community  Ensure Ministries explain their data  Develop Open Data skills within government institutions at all levels  Encourage development of “data literacy” in media and general public 12
  13. 13. Technical Excellence in Open Data delivery  “Open by Design” in upstream systems  Consistent policies, standards & formats  Multiple access methods: raw, API, etc  Network the Open Data portals  Ensure Open, machine readable formats and build the “Semantic Web”  Develop pragmatic privacy safeguards  Ensure truly “Open” licensing for all data 13

  15. 15. Taking Open Data forward Taking Open Data forward will need:  Renewed “call to action”  Sustained institutional leadership  Realistic but stretching target for 2013-14 ‒ G8 linkage?  Prioritisation of actions 15
  16. 16. Issues for analysis & discussion  Are these the correct actions? What else should be added?  How can these be implemented in the Russian context?  What should be the priorities?  What should be the institutional framework?  What goals should be set for 2013-14?  Is another Presidential Directive needed? 16
