  3. 3. 3 Basic project information
  4. 4. 4 Why a project aimed to SMEs? • Assessment of market potential for geo-ICT SMEs in relation to INSPIRE • Identification of reasons of limited involvement in INSPIRE implementation • Development of tools supporting SMEs in their possible INSPIRE business
  5. 5. 5 What has been done in the project? • Report for the European Commission describing SMEs participation in INSPIRE implemenation • Set of tools available on project website • Dissemination activities – smeSpire workshops, smeSpire day
  6. 6. 6 European network of geo-ICT SMEs Surveyed SMES – inputs from project members (start of the project) smeSpire network – input from SMEs (web questionnaire/adhesion form) smeSpire network non SMEs – (public authorities, universities, NGOs…)
  7. 7. 7 How to join the network of SMEs?
  8. 8. 8 Compilation of the report Short web questionnaires (joining the SME database after filling in) Depth interviews: 5 SMEs 3 LMOs 1 INSPIRE national contact point 1 national geoinformation association REPORT for EU Report available: http://www.smespire.eu/publications_publikacie-media_sk/?did=32 Country reports
  9. 9. 9 Size of SMEs – number of employees More than half of the European SMEs is a size of „micro“ Employees Year turnover Medium <250 ≤ € 50 mil Small < 50 ≤ € 10 mil Micro < 10 ≤ € 2 mil
  10. 10. 10 MAIN ACTIVITIES • 82 % interviewed SMEs define themselves as "ICT„ • 18 % is focused on “Architectural and engineering” (8.5%), “Scientific and technical activities” (6.3%) and “Construction and civil engineering” (1.4%) YEAR OF FOUNDATION • 34 % between 1990-1999 • 41 % between 2000 - 2009 • 12 % after year 2010 Main activities and year of foundation
  11. 11. 11 Customers of SMEs Half of the SMEs‘ customers are regional and local authorities 60 % of SMEs base their revenue on public sector (mainly local or national governments)
  12. 12. 12 MAIN ACTIVITIES • 40 % ‘users’ of spatial information • 20% data modeling or data transformation • 27% developing client applications • 6% develop network service solutions ISO CERTIFICATION • 30% of companies are ISO9000 certified: this is tightly coupled to public procurement procedures, seen as obstacle by ‘micro’ and ‘small’ companies due to costs and bureaucracy OPEN SOURCE • 60% of companies are very competent on Open Source Software; SOA is well known, while Resource Oriented Architecture (ROA) is not; mobile applications are still a challenge Activities, ISO certification, open source
  13. 13. 13 INSPIRE INVOLVEMENT • Just one-third of companies are already involved in some INSPIRE-related activities KNOWLEDGE OF INSPIRE • General objectives and principles are well known; regulations about “Data” and “Network services” are less known. • Competences needed to implement INSPIRE are available at private sector level, covering the whole range of activities. SMEs & INSPIRE
  14. 14. 14 SMEs & INSPIRE INVOLVEMENT IN INSPIRE – IN DETAIL • More than 25% in development of view services • More than 25% in development data modeling • More than 20% metadata catalogues • Less than 12% test suits • Less than 10% schema/data transformation

  16. 16. 16 BARRIERS TO INOVATION DEFINED BY SMEs • limited access to data: the licenses for re-use spatial data and the costs curb innovation • difficulties in entering or participating in EU co-funded projects (due to the complexity of bureaucracy and time requested to prepare administrative documents) Main obstacles MAIN OBSTACLES IN EUROPEAN CONTEXT • Only 14% of the overall EC budget for ICT FP7 projects was received by SMEs, while 21% went to Large Enterprises (2007-2011)1. • Almost half of companies see the dominance of the market by established enterprises as the main barrier.

  18. 18. 18 INSPIRE Coordinating committe 21 members
  19. 19. 19 Coordinating committe and working groups CZECH INSPIRE COORDINATING COMMITTEE DATA, DATA QUALITY SERVICES, GEOPORTALS METADATA, CATALOGUES DATA SHARING, LEGISLATION MONITORING EDUCATION
  20. 20. 20 Implementation - technical aspects • METADATA Increase of data and services available (from about 250 metadata records publicly available in 2008 to 1.764 in 2014 (yesterday)) – many data providers started to use metadata after INSPIRE Directive • SERVICES Massive increase of use of view services (e.g. cadaster data – indicator „use of service“ from 36,5 mil in 2009 to 708 mil in 2012) – many other data providers started to make their data available through services after INSPIRE Directive • DATA Large involvement in data specs testing (remaining doubts about the feasibility of harmonization – mainly due to the large volume of time and personal needed)
  21. 21. 21 Implementation non - technical aspects • Data sharing arrangements – e.g. after massive increase of usage of their data Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadaster changed their licences – usage of basic and specific INSPIRE licences • Involvement of various stakeholders – Data providers get more involved – nearly 500 contacts in INSPIRE mailing list – 29 responses to the INSPIRE evaluation questionnaire
  22. 22. 22 ……BUT DO WE HAVE A STRATEGY….?
  23. 23. 23 INSPIRE IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY • 7 years after…. the coordinating committee agreed on content of this strategy • Coordinated by Ministry of the Environment • Preparation 01-10/2014 Czech GIS strategies STRATEGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE FOR SPATIAL INFORMATION IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC 2020 • Decided by government in 11/2012 • Coordinated by Ministry of interior • Preparation 11/2012 - 09/2014
  24. 24. 24 Three groups of goals • To fulfil requirements from the INSPIRE directive • By implementing INSPIRE support other state strategies • By implementing INSPIRE support mainly the decision making processes of the Ministry of the Environment INSPIRE implementation strategy • Forsees further development and use of INSPIRE geoportal
  25. 25. 25 GeoInfoStrategy (State strategy) 4 main goals • Providing guaranteed state services in order to support effective use of spatial information for public administration activities and for general public • Building a national infrastructure for creating, managing and linking data resources • Improvement and further development of the data resources for their use by the public administration and general public • Coordination and development of general arrangements for management and use of spatial data State services Building NSDI State data Legislation/ coordination
  26. 26. 26 GeoInfoStrategy (State strategy) • Forsees creation and update of state required data (required by state = paid by state) • Uses some of the INSPIRE requirements and supports their implementation where practicable • Includes INSPIRE as a sub-part of this national spatial data infrastructure • Might lead to creation of national spatial data infrastructure law • Might lead to creation of National geoportal
  27. 27. 27 Conclusions For most of the Czech SMEs INSPIRE does not create new business opportunities …or only to a small number of SMEs ?
