Public Sector Information Group main page

In 2002, the Commission set up an expert group on Public Sector Information (PSI Group) with the aim to exchange good practices and any initiatives supporting public sector information re-use.

The aim of the PSI Group is to

  • Exchange good practices and initiatives supporting public sector information re-use.
  • Discuss and recommend solutions to challenges such as charging, exclusive agreements, development indicators for measuring public sector information and technology.

The PSI Group consists of representatives of all Member States. Private sector organisations and PSI experts are regularly invited to the meeting on an ad-hoc basis.

As a sub-group to the PSI Group, a working group on the pan-European open data portal was created but later on merged into the broader PSI Group.
