Open Data Support in a nutshell

  1. 1. PwC The mission of Open Data Support is to improve the visibility and facilitate the access to datasets published on local and national Open Data portals in order to increase their reuse within and across borders. This will be achieved by providing homogenised access to metadata descriptions of open datasets via a single point of access. DATASUPPORTOPEN Open Data promises cultural, social and economic benefits for society and business. Open Data initiatives around Europe are expected to promote transparency, foster collaboration across government and beyond, reduce government costs, allow the creation of innovative services, and inform decision-making. Although more than 150 Open Data portals have already been developed at a national, regional and local level all over Europe, the reuse of open datasets remains low due to the physical fragmentation of existing data portals and the lack of awareness (within and across borders and sectors) of available open datasets. Building better access to open datasets across Europe “Currently accessibility to and awareness of open datasets are limited” 150+ Open Data Support is a 36 month project funded by DG CONNECT of the European Commission.
