Open Data 200 Italia è il primo studio sistematico sulle imprese italiane che utilizzano open data nelle loro attività per generare prodotti e servizi e creare valore sociale ed economico. Il progetto è sviluppato dal Govlab - New York University in collaborazione con Fondazione Bruno Kessler, istituto di ricerca con sede a Trento.
Open Data 200 Italia ha l’obiettivo di realizzare un’indagine sull’impatto degli open data e la creazione di valore sociale ed economico a partire dalla valorizzazione del patrimonio informativo pubblico nel contesto italiano. Il team di ricercatori del Digital Commons Lab presso la Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) collaborerà in maniera costante con il GovLab per compilare una lista strutturata di aziende e organizzazioni che utilizzano gli open data quale parte integrante nella loro attività e come risorsa nello sviluppo di prodotti e servizi. Inoltre, il team usufruirà del supporto di esperti del settore. Durante il lancio e la prima fase dello studio, the Govlab ospita un visiting fellow di FBK. L’obiettivo è quello di offrire un quadro esaustivo dell’esperienza italiana. I risultati di Open Data 200 Italia rappresentano una risorsa importante per l’analisi dell’offerta e della domanda di open data su scala nazionale e una base per il miglioramento delle politiche in materia. L’inclusione dell’Italia nel network globale di Open Data 500 favorirà la collaborazione con altri partner a livello internazionale e anche una comparazione con i risultati degli altri studi realizzati.
Il team di Open Data 200 Italia genererà una lista di aziende e organizzazioni sulla base di 1)interviste a esperti del settore e associazioni di categoria, 2)somministrazione di un questionario ai candidati selezionati, 3) un’estesa campagna di outreach, e 4)ricerca approfondita sulle organizzazioni selezionate. I risultati dello studio verranno pubblicati su www.opendata500.com/it.
Open Data 200 Italia non produrrà come risultato un rating o un ranking di imprese. Le imprese identificate sono di varie dimensioni e utilizzano diverse tipologie di dati. Open Data 200 Italia tenta di offrire un quadro esaustivo del contesto italiano in materia di open data. Si tratta di una primo tentativo di investigare in maniera sistematica imprese operanti in diversi settori e di fornire un campione rappresentativo. Attualmente non è ancora possibile individuare uno scenario specifico.
Nel 2011, l'Italia ha aderito all’Open Government Partnership e ha lanciato dati.gov.it. Negli anni successivi si sono susseguite diverse azioni importanti per lo scenario open data italiano. La pubblicazione delle Linee guida per l'interoperabilità semantica attraverso i Linked Open Data e l’introduzione del principio “Open by Default” nell’art.52 del CAD - Codice di Amministrazione Digitale. Nel 2013 l’AGID ha iniziato a elaborare l’Agenda Nazionale Open data e le Linee Guida nazionale per la valorizzazione del patrimonio informativo pubblico, pubblicate nella loro versione finale nel 2014. Recentemente, nel mese di giugno 2015, è stata lanciata la nuova versione di dati.gov.it. Nel frattempo, si è registrato un numero significativo di iniziative open data a diversi livelli: (OpenParlamento, OpenCoesione, OpenBilanci, OpenExpo, ItaliaSicura, Confiscati bene etc.). I risultati di Open Data 200 Italia potranno contribuire a stimolare il dialogo su domanda e offerta di open data in Italia e rappresentano una base importante per formulare e migliorare le politiche nazionali in materia di valorizzazione del patrimonio informativo pubblico.
