Public, accessible and accurate information can create new products and businesses. The overall market size for Public Sector information (PSI) in the EU was estimated at 47 billion Euro in a recent study. Opening up and re-using of public sector information means using it in new ways by adding value to it, combining information from different sources, making mash-ups and new applications, both for commercial and non-commercial purposes. Public sector information has great economic potential: PSI re-use generates new businesses and jobs and provides consumers with more choice and more value for money.

The most promising areas for service innovation through PSI are:

–          Geographical and geospatial information

–          Meteorological information

–          Legal information

–          Environmental information

Examples include real time traffic information and bus timetables together with maps downloaded to smart phones. Public sector information has great economic potential: it generates new businesses and jobs and provides consumers with more choice and more value for money.

Join us for an interactive seminar to learn about European PSI practices, and how these could be applied in Hong Kong.
