Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Increase the availability of data;
* Encourage the publication of dynamic data and the uptake of application programming interfaces

Priorities
* Improve the availability of harmonised content at the EU level making it easier to re-use this data across borders and across sectors

Among financed actions
* Actions must address all of the issues listed below: 
– Support the deployment of new innovative services
> Integrate/develop ecosystems supported by open platforms, and by making use of static and/or real time data accessed or made accessible, where appropriate, via suitable existing or newly developed Application Programming Interfaces

– Harmonisation in terms of data content 
> Include level of detail, where applicable (e.g. equivalent granularity in case of geospatial data), data structure, and semantics

– Address both technical and legal issues
> Include the adoption of harmonised conditions for re-use (be it through direct access or through a provided service

– Facilitate the re-use of data
> both at the level of source data and at the level of data dissemination, making use, as much as possible, of existing or newly developed APIs

– Assess the effects of their implemented solutions
> Provide concrete Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and collect examples of re-use, in order to evaluate the foreseen benefits for citizens and/or businesses

– Address priority domains as defined in European Commission notice 2014/C 240/01
> Examples of domains:  the domains of geospatial, earth observation and environment, meteorological, statistics, companies and company ownership, mobility. Other categories can be considered, when duly justified (e.g. relevance to strategic goals, market developments, etc.)

– Datasets generated by the Actions will have to be discoverable and available through one or more Member State open data portals and through the European Data Portal

* Actions may also support (optional): 
– The deployment of mature open data infrastructures within one or more Member States, facilitating the harmonisation/interoperability across different domains and/or different government levels
