The social and economic transformations affecting Europe have required a
major rethinking of developmental policies in a changing international
scenario. By making the Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) one of its seven
flagships, the Europe 2020 strategy has recognized the enormous
potential and influence that ICT can have on society. DAE aims to help
Europe's citizens and businesses get the most out of digital
technologies. To that purpose, the DAE must combine measures that foster
the provisions for access to ICT with actions that increase its demand.
In this scenario, data play a crucial role since they are fundamental
for creating new knowledge and stimulating innovation. The opening up of
access to public data will grant access to everyone and will
undoubtedly promote new types of innovation. However, along with the
advent of social technologies that allow a near-constant flow of data
from individuals to connected sources, the amount of open data will be
continuously growing at an even higher rate. Every day, 2.5 quintillion
bytes of data are created and about 90% of the data in the world today
has been created in the last 2 years. Therefore, the actual handling of
data for the digital agenda is a complex problem.
On the other hand,
open knowledge is free knowledge created at an appropriate time and in
an appropriate form to be accessible and useful for sustaining advanced
services for citizens and businesses. Hence, as open and big data become
available, there is a growing need to understand how that data can
actually be used to produce open knowledge.
Specific research is
necessary to define new methodologies, techniques and systems that can
shape open data into open knowledge. The tools used for this task must
be timely, personalized and adaptive as they will need to address the
social and economic development in many sectors of society ranging from
e-health to e-commerce, from e-government to e-justice, from e-learning
to e-democracy, and smart cities.
This Special Issue focuses on the
most promising research in the field of Open Data and Open Knowledge as
key features for the implementation of the Digital Agenda. Topics
include but are not limited to:
• Opening up Public Access to Open and Big Data
• Mobile Applications for Open and Big Data
