The workshop is explicitly interested in ideas, concepts and solutions that directly or indirectly address the interoperability of open data and PSI.

Share-PSI 2.0 is a European network for the exchange of experience and ideas around implementing open data policies in the public sector. It brings together government departments, standards bodies, academic institutions, commercial organisations, trade associations and interest groups to identify what does and doesn’t work, what is and isn’t practical, what can and can’t be expected of different stakeholders.
 
The main activity of the network is to organise a series of workshops examining different aspects of PSI. The network is coordinated by WC3 and the Finnish partners are the Ministry of Finance and Forum Virium Helsinki. The workshop in Berlin addresses the topic of interoperability of open and location-aware data, which is in line with the smart & open city themes of Forum Virium Helsinki. Forum Virium Helsinki is also participating in the programme-planning for the workshop.
