From information to knowledge  

The workshop on telematic access to legal information is organized by Cnr-Ittig and Festival d'Europa 2011 and it will take place on May 6, in Florence at  Palagio di Parte Guelfa. It aims not only at disseminating experiences, best practises and initiatives fostering access to legal information to a huge public, but also at bringing these together and creating a dialogue and follow-up stage increasing potentialities and reuse of achieved results.

The rapid explosion of electronic information on the Internet is an unquestionable reality, as well as its enormous impact on research, business and every social activity. However this electronic transformation has its drawbacks. Navigating through such an amount of information sources, often unstructured, may make people waste their time and miss their expectations.

There is a gap between collecting 'documents' and achieving 'information'. Within this context the workshop aims at bringing together on the same table theories, methodologies and experiences focusing on the realization of tools allowing access to European legal information via the Internet (conceived as legal information of the European Union as well as of the Eu countries) and on the relevance that this implies in relation with the exercise of the rights of citizenship of Eu citizens.

The goal is to present both theoretical approaches and results and outcomes of realized and ongoing initiatives and projects particularly those financed by the Eu Commission aiming at favouring the dissemination and the access to legal information in the Eu scenario.

The dissemination of such knowledge seems to be crucial not only for qualified stakeholders (such as legal professionals, policy makers, etc.) but also for common citizens willing to understand their duties and rights with respect to the Eu dimension of citizenship.
