OpenForum Europe Summit 2010

Openness at the heart of the EU Digital Agenda

In 2008, OpenForum Europe had the privilege of hosting Neelie Kroes, then Commissioner of Competition, as she delivered a forward-looking speech on openness and interoperability as a way to improve the competitiveness of ICT markets. On the two-year anniversary of that event, we will have a unique opportunity to hear from Vice President Kroes, now the first-ever Commissioner of the Digital Agenda, her plans for delivering on that vision.Vice President Kroes leads an exciting line-up of speakers, including Professor Yochai Benkler, award-winning author of "The Wealth of Networks", and Professor Nigel Shadbolt, appointed by the UK Government to work alongside Sir Tim Berners-Lee to help transform public access to UK Government information.THEME: Delivering on openness is a first order goal for a Europe on its way to financial recovery. Open ICT is a catalyst for economic growth. Open data is a prerequisite for co-creation and innovation in services and digital citizenship. Basing e-government on open standards is the path to efficiency. However, even if we may agree on many of these issues: how do we move from policy to practice?What are the links between open government, stakeholder engagement, and innovation? How do we balance the benefits of transparency with concerns about privacy and security? How will "government clouds" work and who will own your data?
