 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Katleen (°1978) obtained her law degree at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in 2001 (cum laude). From February until June 2000, she studied as an exchange student at the University of Melbourne in Australia. After graduating, she joined ICRI in August 2001. While working at ICRI, she also completed a DES-degree in corporate law at the K.U.Brussel. From August 2009 until January 2010, she worked as a policy advisor for the Geographic Information Policy Cel of the Ministry of the Flemish Goverment.

Katleen specialises in access to and use of Public Sector Information, and SDI- and GIS-matters. This includes policies promoting the availability of information and policies restricting such availability, e.g. privacy protection, intellectual property rights, etc.

In 2009, Katleen obtained her Phd with a thesis about the legal framework for the availability of public sector spatial data, mainly dealing with the relationship between INSPIRE, PSI and access to environmental information.

Katleen has worked on several projects concerning public sector information in general and spatial data in particular. In 2001, she started with PBO, a project concerning the transparency and exploitation of public sector information, funded by the Ministry of Flanders. From 2002 to 2004, she provided legal advice for the BRIDGE-IT project, a project funded by the European Commission, aiming to provide innovate technologies for the use of geographic information in various application fields. She also works on the State of Play Country reports assessing the development of SDIs in the Member States of the European Union, in cooperation with the Spatial Applications Division Leuven. From 2004 until 2007, she coordinated the legal research in the Walkonweb project, which defined a new publishing model for walking and tourist information. From May 2007, she coordinated the legal research for the Cascadoss project on Open Source Licensing for geo-applications, and from September 2007, she is part of the research consortium of the IWT project Spatialist, on the conditions for a well-functioning SDI. Expanding her research field to geological data, she is currently leading the Work Package on access and licensing protocols in the eContentplus OneGeology Europe project. Since 2010, she is also responsible for the ICRI contribution to the LAPSI Thematic Network and she supervises theFP7 Evita-project on Intelligent Transport Systems.

Katleen is a frequent speaker on PSI and SDI matters on national and international conferences and publishes regularly on these issues. Since October 2005, she is a member of the INSPIRE drafting team for the implementing rules on data sharing, which she has been co-chairing since October 2006. Since 2007, she has contributed as an invited expert to the GEOSS White Paper on Data Policy. From 2010, she is a member of the GDI-Raad, the advisory board that represents the private sector and society interests in the development of the Spatial Data Infrastructure in Flanders.
