OpenData: a catalyst towards a new relationship between citizens and their representatives
There exists two distinct views when it comes to discussing public data. On one hand, a short term view focuses on immediate ROI based on the commerce of public data by the administration or private companies. On the other hand stands the Open Data movement, which bets on indirect development : social innovation, new companies creation, new services for citizens, democratic transparency, ... Reflecting the 12 months of experience of Regards Citoyens, we invite you to discover the value of OpenData for innovation and its benefits towards a better transparent democracy for the citizens.

The Dime Project on Open Data for Open Society
Summary: this talk will present the first research paper developed for the DIME project on this theme by M. Fioretti for the Laboratory of Economics Management of the S. Anna School of Advanced Studies of Pisa, Italy (see http://stop.zona-m.net/node/175). The starting point of the research is the acknowledgement that digital data of all kinds are already continuously used as basis for laws, policies and budgets, at all levels and in all public sectors, including education and scientific research. These are all activities which impact all citizens, therefore unrestricted access to such information should be a key part of every policy aimed to create an open and competitive digital economy. Using Free, Open Source software to generate and manage those data can save money, but makes almost no difference, as far as true e-democracy is concerned, if those data aren't really available to everybody.Consequently, the research programme has three main part. The first is to go beyond FOSS, that is clearly describe the crucial importance of fully accessible and reusable digital raw data for a truly open society, and their role in fostering economical and cultural development. The second is to measure how and how often the same data are actually made available by the organizations which create them. Finally, the programme will produce a series of guidelines and best practices for improving full access to public digital data. The Open World Forum talk would present the main results of the first part of the research and describe how the measures will be performed through an online survey. More information about the paper and the whole research project is available online at http://stop.zona-m.net/node/175
