The session aims to explore how projects funded under the topic Public Sector Open Data for AI can support the actual implementation High Value Datasets in EU territories for the benefit of local communities, following the Implementing Act on High Value Datasets from the European Commission. The Implementing Act on High Value Datasets from the European Commission mandates public sector bodies to publish open, machine-readable data belonging to specific thematic categories (including statistics, Earth Observation, mobility). The stress is firmly put on facilitating the reuse of such datasets even (but not only) for economic purpose; the Act lays down the arrangements for publishing and reusing high-value datasets, the applicable conditions for re-use and the minimum requirements for disseminating data via APIs; aiming also at using open datasets through AI-based applications, it is also important to define and make available the terms of use of the APIs and the related quality of service.

The session, based on the experience done in the first months of life of BeOpen project and RODEO project, will involve the audience giving information on the activities so far performed and the requirements collected coming from the different EU Public Administrations (both at city and regional level) involved in the projects, while meeting their obligations under the Act. First difficulties and challenges are also considered. This session will be an initial moment to share knowledge in between the projects under the same topic and to provide inputs also to others in the complex picture of DEP and HE (but also CEF) programmes, thinking of Data Spaces and AI on Demand Platform particularly, to promote greater transparency, accountability, and innovation in the public sector through open data sharing.
