The last few years have been particularly high in France for OpenData, both locally and nationally. A year after the arrival of the new government, we intend to achieve an overview of the latest policies and citizens as well as new developments hurdles: political renewal dialogue between governments, creating the French chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation, changing data.gouv.fr catalog, use of open formats, open to new areas such as health, reflection on personal data, anti-free lobbying...
The PSI Directive defines the general framework for the reuse of public data in Europe for nearly 10 years. Its review by the European institutions began last year is an opportunity for the free software community and OpenData promote the principles and good essential ecosystem reuse practices: free, free licenses and open formats. What progress and setbacks in this revision?

They actively promote public Open Data principles in France since 2009 and they create web projects using public data to provide tools for a better dialogue between citizens and representatives.
