Webinar

Data.europa.eu hosted the webinar "Open Data Best Practices in Europe: Estonia and Slovenia". This webinar teaches you more about countries who showed impressive growth in the Open Data Maturity Report 2021. The webinar builds on the report on "Open Data Best Practices: Estonia, Slovenia and Ukraine". During the webinar the open data teams of Estonia and Slovenia presented the backbone of their open data practices and afterwards a Q&A session was facilitated. 
In light of the recent situation in Ukraine, the Ukrainian open data team is one of the top performers but was unfortunately not able to speak at the event. We hope to host them at the data.europa academy in the future.

Topics that are covered:

  • The open data best practices in Estonia and Slovenia
  • The common factors between the three countries that helped them to achieve high growth over the years
  • Trends and developments at EU and country level along the four assessment dimensions: policy, portal, data quality, and impact.

The learning objectives are:

  • Learn about the goals and objectives of the annual Open Data Maturity assessment.
  • Understand open data best practices in high growth countries according to the Open Data Maturity Report 2021: Estonia and Slovenia
  • Learn about the factors that helped these countries to achieve high growth in open data maturity over the last years
  • Gain advice on how to improve your open data policy, impact, portal, and quality

Use case observatory

Data.europa.eu offers a catalogue displaying European practices that re-use open data. The purpose of the collection of use cases is to assemble interesting European stories about the benefits and efficiency gains that result from the use of open data. The catalogue allows you to search for use cases within your country or sector of interest.
