EVPSI: Extracting Value from Public Sector Information

Executive summary

Extracting Value from Public Sector Information: Legal Framework and Regional Policies (EVPSI) was a multidisciplinary research project, coordinated by the Turin Law School, active between 2010 and 2012. The Nexa Center contributed in particular in identifying the main policy implications of the research.

Background

Objectives

The main objective of the EVPSI activities was to maximize the benefits to be obtainable from accessing and re-use of PSI. In the academic year 2012/2013, the Nexa Center aimed at effectively supporting EVPSI in its ending phase, and extracting interesting policy indications to be used within the policy support activity of the Center in the field of open data.

Results

The main EVPSI research outputs are collected in the forthcoming volume (Ricolfi and Sappa, eds.) Extracting Value From Public Sector Information: Legal Framework and Regional Policies, published by Edizioni Scientifiche Italiane, Napoli, containing contributions also by Nexa researchers, focused on licensing, and the economics of PSI.
