SharePSI 2.0 – Call for Submissions for Samos Summit

Uses of Open Data Within Government for Innovation and Efficiency

Share-PSI 2.0 is the European network for the exchange of experience and ideas around implementing open data policies in the public sector. It brings together government departments, standards bodies, academic institutions, commercial organisations, trade associations and interest groups to identify what does and doesn’t work, what is and isn’t practical, what can and can’t be expected of different stakeholders.
