INTRODUCTION 
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
• Open and Big Data Acquisition, Transmission and Management
• Data Security and Privacy Issues
• User-Oriented Mobile Services 
• Knowledge-Based Business Intelligence
• Open Data for Smart Cities
• Customer Centric Knowledge
• Social Knowledge Discovery and Exploitation
• Knowledge Accessibility and Sharing
• Web Mining Systems
• Knowledge-based Intelligent Systems.
