EU to launch tender notice for Open Data Portal

FutureGov Asia - In the coming weeks, IT companies will be able to access the European Union’s tender notice which seeks to create an EU-wide online portal to allow greater access to government information and services.

According to Carl-Christian Buhr, an advisor to Neelie Kroes, the EU’s digital agenda commissioner, the aim of the project is to change how European citizens interact with the government on a range of levels to make government data, statistics and other figures, more easily accessible.

It would ideally combine the portal of the European institutions and Europe as a whole, a portal that really links up all that is available at a local and national level” Buhr said in a report published by Deutsche Welle.
