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.
