Abstract

The report aims to isolate and examine the socio-institutional barriers to better re-use of Public Sector Information (PSI). It assesses the draft proposal for a Data Mashing Lab (DML) (see: Appendix 2) and is intended for a specialized audience of government policy makers. The findings are informed by key informant interviews. The interviews were conducted on a non-attributable basis in the period 14 September to 6 October 2006 and are supported by the literature review outlined in the opening two chapters, and the insights of four workshops also attended in May-September 2006. We thank the workshop and interview participants for their full and frank contributions to this research project. The stakeholders interviewed included experts from: academia, Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs), Trading Funds, private entrepreneurs, corporations, standards bodies, and government policy officials with both domestic and international responsibilities. The schedule of interviews and workshop programmes are contained in Appendix 1.
