_Get an EC Travel Bursary for the Open Government Data Camp in Warsaw_

The European Commission is providing travel bursaries for EU participants of
the  upcoming Open Government Data Camp ([3]ogdcamp.org), in Warsaw on
October 20th and 21st.
     3. http://ogdcamp.org

The OGD Camp will bring together around 400 participants from 50 countries
to exchange experiences, ideas and examples of moving the open government
data process forward. The event will additionally be surrounded on preceding
days and days after the event with satellite events and sessions on various

The bursary is open to all citizens and residents of EU27 member states
travelling to the camp from within the EU, and a maximum of 30 participants
will receive support.

The  bursary  the EC is providing aims to support people who could not
otherwise afford to participate in the camp – and this will be taken into
account when applications are processed.

If you would like to apply, please [4]fill out the application form by 2200
CEST on 7th September 2011. We will inform you of the decision of the panel
by the 14th September 2011.
_Send  in Your Contributions to the EC Public Consultation on Access to
Scientific Information before Sept. 9th!_
     4. http://bit.ly/ogdcamp2011-eutravel

The public consultation by the EC on open access to scientific information
is still taking place. You can still _contribute your views until September

A  [5]public  consultation  on access to, and preservation of, digital
scientific information has been launched by the European Commission on the
initiative of European Commission Vice President for the Digital Agenda
Neelie  Kroes  and  Commissioner  for  Research  and Innovation, Máire
Geoghegan-Quinn. European researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs must have
easy and fast access to scientific information, to compete on an equal
footing  with  their  counterparts  across  the  world. Modern digital
infrastructures can play a key role in facilitating access. However, a
number of challenges remain, such as high and rising subscription prices to
scientific publications, an ever-growing volume of scientific data, and the
need to select, curate and preserve research outputs. Open access, defined
as free access to scholarly content over the Internet, can help address
this. Scientists, research funding organisations, universities, and other
interested parties are invited to send their contributions on how to improve
access  to  scientific  information. The consultation will run until 9
September 2011. Accessing and re-using knowledge is a key objective of the
[6]Digital Agenda for Europe and the [7]Innovation Union.

_The epsiplatform.eu gets a makeover_

During the summer our team has been busy to prepare for a makeover for the
epsiplatform.eu. The name, url will stay the same, and all the great content
that is already there will remain. The design and underlying technology will
change however, so that we can put you and other community members more in
the picture. That way we will work to making sure everybody can not just
easily find all information on PSI re-use, but can easily find ways to
connect to other people working in the field, as well as find out which
groups are active where in Europe. After the makeover we will also start to
collect your stories and anecdotes on working with PSI, to take sharing
experiences to a new level. We will keep you posted (and a sneak preview may
soon be available)!

_Looking for PSI / Open Data events? Use our Event Calendar!_

Europe we come across. Looking for something happening this month? Have a
