Jose, all
I will be in Malmo and happy to debrief. It looks like open data will  
be a key focus, not only in our Open Declaration but also in the  
official statements.

The recent Visby conference on EU ICT policy gave good priority to  
open data. Hans Rosling of Gapminder was keynote speaker.
http://www.se2009.eu/en/meetings_news/2009/11/9/visby_agenda_creating_impact_for_an_eunion_2015

The conclusions of the presidency (the most important document) state  
that
10. EU member states and community institutions should seek to make  
data freely accessible in open machine-readable formats, for the  
benefit of entrepreneurship, research and transparency.
11. Access to and reuse of public sector information and data should  
be improved among EU Member States. The domains of data targeted by  
the Directive on the re-use of public sector information should be  
enlarged.
