To make Open Data interoperable, the ISA² programme has developed DCAT-AP. With this specification, public sector datasets can easily be described, enabling cross-data portal searches and making data better searchable across borders and sectors. Specifically for statistical datasets, the programme now presented the first version of StatDCAT-AP. Read all about it below

To truly embed Open Data in their government, Germany published a draft Open Data act at the end of 2016. With this draft, the government adopts an 'Open by default' dogma, making it clear to both users and publisher what will be published. Do you want to know more about the draft or do you want to comment on it? Read our news of the day

www.europeandataportal.eu harvests metadata of Public Sector Information available on public data portals across European countries.
Introduction
More and more volumes of data are published every day, every hour, every minute, every second. The amount of data across the world is expected to increase exponentially. A substantial amount of this data is collected by governments.

The European Data Portal harvests the metadata of Public Sector Information available on public data portals across European countries. Portals can be national, regional, local or domain specific. They cover the 28 EU Member States, EEA, countries involved in the EU's neighbourhood policy and Switzerland.

Open (Government) Data refers to the information collected, produced or paid for by the public bodies (also referred to as Public Sector Information) and made freely available for re-use for any purpose. The licence will specify the terms of use.

Public sector information is information held by the public sector. The Directive on the re-use of public sector information provides a common legal framework for a European market for government-held data. It is built around the key pillars of the internal market: free flow of data, transparency and fair competition. It is important to note that not all of the public sector information is Open Data.
