Background czech republic

BACKGROUND – Czech Republic

  • Stakeholders on Public Sector Information

    • Public authorities – creators and/or users

    • Enterprises – creators of added valueand providers of information services

    • Enterprises – users (generally all industries)

    • Non profit sector – creators and/or users

    • Citizens – users

  • Each of them follows own interest

    • public services

    • business

    • non profit activities etc.

  • Situation in re-use of PSI

    • ACCES to PSI – quite favourable state

    • RE-USE of PSI – more issues, necessityto cultivate environment, conditions and general attitude

Background legal framework

BACKGROUND - Legal Framework

  • Freedom of Information Act (FOI Act)

  • The Directive 2003/98/EC was transposed into existing act – Free Access to Information Act No. 106/1999 Coll.

  • FOI legislation governs mainly ACCESS to information but not RE-USE

  • Practice processes of PSI Holders has not changed considerably

    • They publish PSI mostly on web pages

    • They do not care for re-users needs

    • Distribution services lag behind single shot access

    • Restrictions and exceptions are occurred

Public sector culture

Public Sector Culture

  • Factors influencing culture in Public Sector:

  • Internal

    • Civil servant him/herself, his/her personality and opinion

    • Civil servant's boss opinion (all bosses in the organizational hierarchy)

    • Internal lawyer's education and attitude to information society

  • External

    • Traditions of the institution (open versus secretive)

    • (Market) Value of information produced

    • Number of „friendly“ companies being able to generate money from PSI

    • Costs needed for investment in technologies, personnel etc.

Ok but does anybody know about

OK, but… does anybody know about?

  • Almost no educational occassions yet

  • Something at MASARYK UNIVERSITY, Brno (colleague Polčák)

  • Possible abuse from the governmental & experts side

  • FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO HAVE A PROPER EDUCATION POSSIBILITY TO KNOW THE TRUE

Research through education

RESEARCH THROUGH EDUCATION

  • PSI is not common research topic in CR

  • Lack of awareness among „old school teachers“

  • Affilation unclear (some in Brno – lawyers, economists, geographers)

  • – no holistic approach
