"Goals and structure of this report
"The report discusses the current and potential role, in a truly
open society, of raw Public Sector Information (PSI) that is really
open, that is fully accessible and reusable by everybody. The
general characteristics of PSI and the conclusions are based on
previous studies and on the analysis of current examples both from
the European Union and the rest of the world."
