Scottish Government Digital Public Services and the National Archives will run a one-day Open Data and PSI Awareness Workshop on Monday 19th January 2015 in Edinburgh. 

The workshop is intended for people working within the public sector, and will provide an opportunity for attendees to find out more about Scotland's Open Data Strategy, the principles set out in it, and what it means for their organisation.  It will also provide attendees with practical advice on how best to prepare for the amended re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations. 

The event is free of charge. To register your interest, please contact: Rowena.Simpson at scotland.gsi.gov.uk <mailto:Rowena.Simpson at scotland.gsi.gov.uk>

Developed by a cross-sector working group, a document describing Scotland’s Open Data Strategy is due to be published soon — a draft <http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Economy/digital/digitalservices/datamanagement/MeetingsandPublications/DMBMeetingFive/DMBMeeting5Paper3> is already available.

The European Directive on the re-use of public sector information was amended in 2013, with measures to increase the number of public sector bodies subject to it, to require certain public sector bodies to allow re-use and to extend the scope of re-use to museums, libraries and archives in certain circumstances. Member States are required to implement the amending Directive no later than 18 July 2015, although the UK intends to transpose ahead of that date <http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/re-using-public-sector-information/psi-directive-transposition/>.
