EU Directive on Public Sector Information

Three free seminars across the UK

The Digital Content Forum (DCF), in partnership with the Department for Trade and Industry, HMSO and regional organisations around the UK are holding three free seminars in March 2005. The aim of the seminars is to explore how the forthcoming Regulations implementing the EU Directive on the Re-Use of Public Sector Information, which come into force on 1 July 2005, will awaken new opportunities for businesses.

The seminars will:
set the new Regulations within the wider European perspective;
give an insight into how implementation will work within the UK;
explain what public sector bodies themselves are doing to prepare; and
offer the opportunity to hear from industry figures who are experts in the field, and have successfully commercially exploited public sector information.
The dates for these seminars are:

Bristol - Watershed Media Centre, 2 March 2005
Birmingham - The Technology Innovation Centre, 9 March 2005
Newcastle - Jury's Inn, 30 March 2005

To find out more or to book your place, please e-mail your contact details to quoting either Bristol/Birmingham/Newcastle in the subject field depending on your preferred location.
