  • How to exploit open data for SMEs and start-ups.
  • Presentation of success cases

  • Discussion on the needs of the SMEs, start-ups to better exploit the opportunities of open data.

Blue Sip technique application should be executed at this point. Through some key questions and working in multidisciplinary teams the participants will achieve the main conclusions.

Some of the key topics are:

  • What is the purpose of open data reuse for the SME? Is it for improving the Business model, Decision making, reporting, or easy data visualization?
  • What allies does the SME need to complete the product, service or visualization?

  • Is it something punctual or does it have permanence and requires updates? What business model does reuse have or how will it be maintained / financed overtime?

  • Who are the final consumers of reuse? Would be internal reuse (employees or other departments) or external (final customer)?

  • What needs would reuse cover them?

  • Where is the open data we need? how can a SME access to them?

  • How do you know that the data set you need are available? What capabilities do you need? What allies do you need?

  • What problems do we face today for access to the necessary open data? How could these barriers be solved?

  • Exploring connectivity between R&D/SME/PA

Group and consensus selection of the considered strength ideas considered especially relevant through the Map it technique. Identify and examine the connections between the R&D/SME/PA.

  • Challenges and opportunities form the viewpoint of PA.

Blue Sip technique application should be executed at this point. Through some key questions and working in multidisciplinary teams the participants will achieve the main conclusions.

  • How can PA know the data set that the private sector needs available?

  • Transparency and good governance.

  • Open government at the service of the 2030 Agenda. How can the open data provided by the PA help achieve the achievement of the SDGs?  SDG 16 PEACE JUSTICE AND SOLID INSTITUTIONS (16.6, 16.7 and 16.10).

  • Open data is data that anyone can use, reuse and redistribute freely.

The definition of full opening gives precise details of what it means. To summarize the most important:

• Availability and access: the information must be available as a whole and at a reasonable cost of reproduction, preferably by downloading it from the internet. In addition, the information must be available in a convenient and modifiable form.

• Reuse and redistribution: data must be provided under terms that allow it to be reused and redistributed, and even integrated with other data sets.

• Universal participation: everyone should be able to use, reuse and redistribute the information. There should be no discrimination in terms of effort, people or groups.

 

Reporting:

This phase includes all the tasks related to the evaluation of the results after the workshops. The most important task is to send the minutes and report conclusions to attendees and participants after each workshop. The minutes must collect at least the following points:

  • Name of the workshop.
  • Participants.

  • Assistants.

  • Objective of the workshop.
