Whether you are completely new to open data or want to learn some more about it and interact with top actors in this area, you are welcome to join us at the RAW Open Data event. Attendance is free, but requires registration due to the limited number of seats.
We have put together a thorough agenda. In the first part of our journey we'll start by establishing some common-ground on open data and getting a brief overview of the world’s leading open-source data portal platform. Then, we'll find out about the implications of an EU directive that requires the public sector to progressively open its data. After that, we move on to learn about the intricacies of licensing the data to be opened. The second part of our journey is dedicated to open data projects: we'll hear about efforts to unlock the full potential of the public sector information in the Mediterranean space; about the experience of the Portuguese public administration in opening its data; about how Grenoble is using open data to promote social innovation; and about how real-time open data can foster value creation and a higher quality of service to users of public transport. We'll close the day with a presentation about learning from our data using innovative visualisations.

Public Sector Information is the set of data collected, managed, produced by Public Sector Bodies (PSBs). In principle, this information - aggregated or per se - embeds a huge economic and social potential. This is why it is crucial to access it and enable its re-use for both market and non economic purposes. In order to foster re-users activities it it important that PSBs use appropriate licenses: only in this way re-user is enabled and the social, cultural and economic growth is ensured.

Paolo Ciuccarelli - Politecnico di Milano
Data Visualization is not always enough, especially if you want to bring Open Data in the hands of non-experts and engage the public. Even with specialists, a better user experience in data interfaces can improve the effectiveness and the efficiency of analytical processes. Design can help in creating pro-active relationships between stakeholders and Open Data, building "data experiences" that go beyond the two dimensions.
