It’s time to Open – Preparing for new Open Data and Reuse of PSI Directive – Webinar (March 24, 2021) – Recording Available

The new “Open Data and Re Use of Public Sector Information (PSI)” Directive is due to be transposed into Irish law by July 2021.

The inclusion of ‘Open Data’ in the title provides clarity and strengthens the requirement for public bodies to publish data in open formats.

It means that Public Service Bodies need to plan and execute concrete practical steps to comply with this Directive that will translate into realising the underlying benefits linked to Open Data in general and Data Sharing intra/inter Public Service Organisations.
