Open Knowledge Foundations’s CKAN Software to Power new European Commission Data Portal

02/02/2012

$s Published: . Tagged in Data.gov, open data

The European Commission is to make its data publicly and openly available through a new data portal, along the lines of those already used by national governments such as http://data.gov.uk/. Like http://data.gov.uk/ the new site will be based on the open-source CKAN Data Portal Software developed by the Open Knowledge Foundation.

The Foundation will also be one of the partners in the project to build the site; the project’s official press release is below. See also the announcement on the CKAN blog.

    A little step for the European Commission, a giant step for Open Data… I like it as we are working on Budget Monitoring in the Netherlands. Check http://www.budgetmonitoring.nl and http://www.budgetmonitoring.eu
