The overall objective is to help boost the development of information products and services based on the re-use and combination of open public data, across the EU.

Priorities and funded actions:

– to continue the support to the generation, aggregation and cross-border/cross domain harmonisation of open datasets at all levels of government, including cities, integrating the support provided by WP2015
– to foster the availability of harmonised and detailed datasets content description for their full and informed use

– Support actions re-using information made discoverable/available through the European Data Portal, where appropriate in combination with other sources of information, such as the INSPIRE geo-portal, via operational and sustainable end-user dedicated solutions. The deployment of new services by innovation ecosystems supported by open platforms (such as FIWARE) in domains reaching significant critical mass is encouraged.
– Improve the usability of Open Data across borders through a convergence of licensing conditions for Open Data in Europe, inter alia by way of progressive alignment of identical licensing conditions in existing national licences, thus facilitating their machine readability.
– Propose a EU-wide assessment model demonstrating the impacts of open data, such as through the provision of a toolkit for the national administrations (standard procedures, software solutions which might include the processing of open data, harmonised questionnaires, key indicators, etc.) to facilitate ex-post evaluation of the economic and social impacts brought about by the re-use of public sector information in Europe.
