The measurement of open data maturity in Europe
Kirstine's bookmarks 2019-06-17
Open data has been identified as a fundamental resource for governments, businesses and civil society. In 2015, we launched the European Data Portal to improve access to open data from European countries and to foster high-quality public data publication at national, regional, and local level. Within this scope, we have been conducting our annual landscaping exercise to assess European countries’ maturity in terms of open data. This landscaping exercise offers a benchmark to assess what the state of play of open data in Europe is, where European countries stand with regard to open data, and what progress countries have made. The results of these studies are summarised in yearly reports (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018). In addition, the results are shown in the open data maturity dashboard, a tool that provides an easy and playful way to compare countries’ level of open data maturity.
