Discover the data.europa academy: Sixth course, ‘Moving towards data spaces’
Data spaces aim to support data sharing across sectors, shaping our society and economy. The sixth course of the restructured data.europa academy‘Moving towards data spaces’, will dive deeper into data spaces by introducing the concept of these open data platforms, the infrastructures, user needs and developments, the role of data.europa.eu and the future of data portals.
Data spaces are ecosystems that operate based on shared policies and rules to overcome legal and technical barriers to data sharing. The first lesson, ‘Introduction to open data platforms’, will help you get up to speed with the meaning of open data platforms and why they are important. In the second lesson, ‘Mid- and long-term sustainability of (open) data portal infrastructures’, you will learn how open data ecosystems ensure that open data portals remain relevant for the years to come.
One of the key components when developing an open data ecosystem is to make sure what users’ needs are. You will learn how to involve users in the design and development of an open data portal in the third lesson, ‘Understanding user needs and the development of the portal’. Furthermore, data.europa.eu plays an important role when creating an open data portal, which you will discover in the fourth lesson ‘The role of data.europa.eu in EU data spaces’. To get a solid understanding of what is expected from open data portals in the future, webinars and reading materials in the last lesson ‘The future of open data portals’ cover new concepts and ideas on how a data portal should be build.
