On 23 January, officials from the three main EU institutions gathered again to discuss a new directive that will facilitate the availability and reuse of public sector data in Europe. All in all, 2019 should be another milestone year for establishing open data and data sharing as the future for any transparent and accountable organization.

Open Data in Europe

Open data means data that anyone can access, use and share. President Obama first coined the term in 2008 and, since then, open data has gained ground in Europe too. Over the last several years, EU decision-makers have taken considerable steps to help governments, businesses and individuals use open data and bring about social, economic and environmental benefits.
