Yesterday I was in Luxembourg to participate in the EC’s PSI Work Group meeting. The current state of open PSI and open government data was discussed, with some 16 of the EU member states present. It seems Denmark, UK, Spain, France, Sweden and the Netherlands are the six that are moving along fastest, and of the bigger countries Germany is the one most persistently doing next to nothing (on the national level).
I was invited to the meeting to give a perspective on open PSI as seen from the ‘open data enthusiasts’ community that is coalescing in Europe both on local, national and EU levels. I think I gave some constructive criticism on the state of play.
My slides and text are available as always on Slideshare:
