26.09.2019 - Workshop
Révision de la directive PSI & Open Data quel impact pour votre
administration?

De herziene PSI richtlijn & Open Data wat is de impact op jouw
administratie?

Le 20 juin 2019, il y a quelques semaines à peine, le Parlement européen a signé la version révisée de la Directive concernant les données ouvertes et la réutilisation des informations du secteur public, également connue sous le nom de Directive PSI. Les versions précédentes de cette Directive, de 2003 et 2013, ont révolutionné la politique des administrations publiques belges en matière d'ouverture de l'information aux citoyens et aux entreprises. La version révisée doit être transposée en droit belge pour le 21 juillet 2021.
Le 26 septembre 2019, ces questions seront abordées lors d'une après-midi d'étude organisée par le projet FLEXPUB. Dans un premier temps, la révision de la Directive PSI sera présentée, après quoi un certain nombre d'experts prendront la parole. Chacun de ces experts se concentrera sur une administration spécifique : L'administration fédérale, l'administration flamande et l'administration wallonne. Les participants pourront poser des questions. Enfin, une session interactive examinera la valeur ajoutée des données ouvertes pour les administrations elles-mêmes.
Cette après-midi d'étude vous permettra de comprendre les modifications apportées à la Directive PSI et de vous adapter à votre propre administration, en vue de la transposition devant survenir d'ici juillet 2021.

Op 20 juni 2019 ondertekende het Europees Parlement de herziene versie van de “Public Sector Information Directive”, ook wel gekend als de PSI Directive. Voorgaande versies van deze Richtlijn, uit 2003 en 2013, hebben gezorgd voor ommekeer in het beleid van de Belgische publieke administraties in het openstellen van informatie voor burgers en bedrijven. Op 21 juli 2021 dient de herziene versie te zijn omgezet in Belgische recht.
Op 26 september 2019 zullen deze vragen tijdens een leerrijke middag, georganiseerd door het FLEXPUB project, aan bod komen. Eerst zal de herziene PSI Richtlijn worden voorgesteld, daarna zullen er een aantal experten aan het woord komen. Ieder van deze experten zal focussen op één specifieke administratie: De federale administratie, de Vlaamse administratie en de Waalse administratie. Deelnemers zullen vragen kunnen stellen. Tot slot zal via een interactieve sessie gekeken worden naar de toegevoegde waarde van open data voor de administraties zelf.
Deze namiddagsessie zal je in staat stellen de herziene PSI Richtlijn te begrijpen en te kaderen binnen je eigen administratie, met het oog op omzetting tegen juli 2021.

Ça schtroumpfe à l’Observatoire!
Un des précédents directeurs de l’Observatoire royal de Belgique était un ami de Peyo. Ensemble, ils choisirent d’illustrer l’actualité des recherches en sciences de la Terre à l’Observatoire avec les Schtroumpfs. Ainsi, dès 1966, les petits hommes bleus ont égayé pas moins de 18 cartes de vœux inspirées par les recherches et les instruments de l’Observatoire. Ces cartes vous sont ici présentées, accompagnées de quelques-uns des instruments qui y sont illustrés.

Smurfen op de Sterrenwacht!
Een voormalige directeur van de Koninklijke Sterrenwacht van België was een goede vriend van Peyo. Samen vatten ze het idee op om de nieuwigheden in het aardwetenschappelijk onderzoek aan de Sterrenwacht te illustreren aan de hand van de Smurfen. Zo verschijnen vanaf 1966 niet minder dan 18 wenskaarten met de vrolijke kleine blauwe mannetjes, geïnspireerd door het onderzoek en de instrumenten van de Sterrenwacht. Deze kaarten worden hier samen met enkele van de geïllustreerde instrumenten tentoongesteld.

Gao Xingjian - The awakening of consciousness
Six monumental works by Gao Xingjian, especially created for the room they are displayed in. In his 'awakenings of consciousness', the artist invites the wanderer to cross the image and to encounter, beyond the ink, the idea itself in its existential nudity… a space where the museums (re)devote themselves to contemplation.
Nobel prize in Literature winner in 2000, Gao Xingjian, Frenchman of Chinese descent, considers himself a 'go-between' between the Oriental world which forms the basis of his identity and the Occidental world of which he discusses the idea of modernity. His work also constitutes a gateway between painting and writing.

Bruegel. Unseen Masterpieces
When art meets technology

Drawing on a wide spectrum of virtual and on-site experiences, this unique initiative offers everyone the chance to immerse themselves in Bruegel’s works by honing in on the details of each painting and accessing expert knowledge. By delving deeper into the artist’s world, the viewer will discover the unexpected elements in Bruegel’s works which constitute the pinnacle of the Flemish master’s craft. The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium launched this project jointly with the Google Cultural Institute in anticipation of the 450th anniversary of Bruegel’s death, in 2019. The project brings together major international museums, many of which are European, around the focal figure of Bruegel the Elder. This innovative concept is the fruit of in- -depth thinking on current transformations in the field of museology as it adapts to the digital era.depth thinking on current transformations in the field of museology as it adapts to the digital era.

Crossroads
Travelling through Middle Ages

From September 2019 to March 2020, we will host the travelling exhibition “Crossroads. Travelling through the Middle Ages”. After Amsterdam, Bonn and Athens the Art & History Museum Brussels will show this wide variety of unique and exceptional objects presenting different materials and techniques from all over Europe from the period popularly known as ‘The Dark Ages’. Crossroads throws new light on this misconception, presenting a fascinating image of migration, contact and exchange – of the birth of Europe. Diverse artefacts, going from Visigoth jewellery to parchment manuscripts with Runes and from golden coins from Byzantine Emperors to Coptic textiles with stunning colours and motifs, reveal this cultural exchange.

The World of Bruegel in Black and White
Bruegel is a world-renowned painter, but in the 16th century it wasn’t his paintings he was known for - it was his graphic work which brought him widespread fame. This 2019 exhibition offers you the opportunity to get up close and personal with Bruegel’s famous prints. As a pioneer in the rediscovery of Bruegel’s lesser-known masterpieces, the Royal Library of Belgium will exhibit its complete collection of prints during this special Bruegel year, at ‘The World of Bruegel in Black and White’.
