EC now tendering for Open Data Portal

EPSI Platform - At the Digital Agenda Assembly workshop on Open Data in June, mr. Khalil Rouhana of the European Commission announced the intention (slide 7) to build a European Open Data portal. Rouhana said that a EC Portal should become operational in 2012, holding a significant amount of EC datasets. It is also planned that by 2013 a pan/european data portal should present datasets published by the Member States.

Today, the European Commission has taken a new step in realizing the European Data Portal. The EC has published a call for tenders to develop the data portal on it's electronic Tender Portal ted.europa.eu. The call for tenders is one of the necessary steps for realizing the ambition of creating one pan-european Open Data portal.
