Webinar

Data.europa.eu hosted the webinar "Data Demand and Re-use in the Public Sector" on Tuesday 29 March. Building on the discussion paper “Measuring data demand within the public sector”, this webinar provides an introduction to data re-use by public institutions (e.g. to develop new public services) and the importance of engaging with and measuring data demand by this specific group of users.

Different expert speakers from practice and academia presented best practices of assessing this demand and reflect on the impact on open data supply:

  • Charlotte van Ooijen, associate director digital government and data at the Lisbon Council
  • Frederika Welle Donker, assistant professor at the Knowledge Centre Open Data at the Delft University of Technology
  • Antonin Garrone, product owner data.gouv.fr at Etalab-DINUM-Prime Minister's Office

The learning objectives are:

  • Gain insight into the value of data re-use within the public sector
  • Learn about different approaches to measure public institutions’ data demand
  • Strengthen the understanding of a demand-driven approach to data publication
  • Reflect on how data.europa.eu can support data providers in taking on board public institutions’ data demand

The recording of the webinar can be found under 'Videos'. Also, the slides used during the webinar can be found under 'Reading'

This report reviews relevant literature, policy decisions, and national initiatives to allow for a deeper understanding of the current status around value assessment of datasets. The findings from interviews with selected open data providers from different Member States provide insights into different perceptions and expectations around high-value datasets (HVDs). 

PSI re-use in the public sector

Estimated reading time:
1h

English
The Directive on Public Sector Information (PSI) defines which data should be re-usable and under what conditions. Although there are more and more datasets open, public organisations are not yet exploiting the benefits of their re-use. This report provides a set of eight steps to become a successful PSI re-user in the public sector.
