Open Data Market Size in Estonia Could Amount to 445 Million Euro by 2025
European Data Portal’s experts Esther Huyer and Laura van Knippenberg forecast that the market size of open data in Estonia could reach 445 million euro by 2025 if current growth continues. To harness the economic potential of open data, they recommend countries to increase collaboration between the public and private sectors, combine different types of data, and focus on improving the awareness and capacity of data reusers.
