"The [current] disconnect between the EU and national level and the local one presents a particular challenge for those like Neelie Kroes who hope that the open data movement will indeed ‘turn government data into gold’ – especially if by gold we mean more cost-efficient and effective public services as well as new wealth generation."

Despite Neelie Kroes' ambitious declarations for a new open data strategy at the regional level, authorities are still struggling to become familiar with that process and the strategy still faces fierce resistance, writes Julia Glidden from 21c Consultancy.

Democracy is not just about voting for our leaders. Democracy is about citizens with the information, freedom of communication & the need to govern themselves.

The European Commission established the e-Inclusion Awards to raise awareness, encourage participation and recognise excellence and good practice in using ICT and digital technology to tackle social and digital exclusion across Europe.

"We want to collect all the great practice across Europe in supporting people to go online and the stories of individuals who have benefitted from their internet experience."

These awards will collect information about impact through an application form. We are also asking for audio visual materials that express your successes – stories told on blogs, videos, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Have you registered you project? Don't miss out
