OpenDataWeek Marseille : Gérald Santucci -- EU Harmonisation and the Data Value Chain : Challenges & Opportunities

  1. 1. EU Harmonisation and the Data Value Chain : Challenges & Opportunities Gérald Santucci Head of Unit, European Commission, DG CONNECT, Unit 02 – Knowledge Sharing
  2. 2. Why does the EU support Open Data? 1. Untapped business opportunities: • the information held by governments could be used to generate from €40 to €140 billion a year (source: EC) 1. Addressing societal challenges 2. Achieving efficiency gains through sharing data inside and between public administrations 3. Fostering involvement/engagement of citizens in political and social life (empowerment) and increasing transparency of government (governance) Read more: Commission policy paper: COM(2011) 882 "Open data, An engine for innovation, growth and transparent governance"
  3. 3. G8 leaders signed the Open Data Charter on 18 June 2013 The Open Data Charter: sets out 5 strategic principles that all G8 members will act on. These include an expectation that all government data will be published openly by default, alongside principles to increase the quality, quantity and re-use of the data that is released. G8 members have also identified 14 high-value areas – from education to transport, and from health to crime and justice – from which they will release data. These will help unlock the economic potential of open data, support innovation and provide greater accountability.
  4. 4. EP adopts new EU Open Data rules on 13 June 2013 Only 16 months to reach agreement: all EU institutions are committed to unlock the full potential of the open data goldmine. Developers, programmers, creative citizens and businesses: • are now able to get and re-use public sector data at zero or very low cost in most cases • have access to more exciting and inspirational content since materials in libraries, museums and archives fall under the umbrella of the Directive
  5. 5. G8 and EU OGD principles: how much compatible? • G8 - Open data by default - Quality & quantity - Useable by all - Releasing data for improved governance - Releasing data for innovation • EU  - Completeness  - Primary  - Timeliness  - Accessible  - Machine-readable  - Non-discriminatory  - Non-proprietary  - License-free
  6. 6. Thematic networks & stakeholder outreach activities Member States’ expert group Open data portals Studies on the economic potential of PSI re-use Non- legislative measures to facilitate PSI re-use A common legislative framework (Directive 2003/98/EC, revised in 2013) PSI

EU Open Data Portals & Infrastructures • December 2012: Commission Open Data portal • A portal site for Commission-held information • Work with Member States on data formats and interoperability between existing Open Data portal sites • A pan-European umbrella site a a single access point to make data from all government levels more easily available and re-sable • 2013 and after: Pan-European Open Data Portal (prototype) • Work towards an infrastructure for multilingual services • A European Digital Service infrastructure for Open Data?
  10. 10. The EU Open Data Portal • Site launched in beta version in December 2012 http://open-data.europa.eu • Almost 6,000 datasets can be browsed, learnt about and downloaded • Based on open source solutions (LAMP software bundle, OKF’s CKAN data catalogue software, Drupal content management system) • Metadata catalogue: Dublin Core + DCAT + ADMS • License conditions: Open license as default (equivalent to CC BY), but exceptions allowed More info: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/open-data- portals
  11. 11. Towards a pan-European infrastructure for (Open) Data • One single gateway to reusable information with the aim of enabling combination of information held by various open data portals at various levels throughout the EU • Services around open data • Dedicated service infrastructure for language resources in order facilitate multi-lingual access to online services
