ePaństwo Foundation believes that open data can help solve problems and facilitate the functioning of cities.
The ePaństwo Foundation is a Polish organisation that was founded in 2010 and provides support to cities, communities, counties and public institutions that want to make their data publicly available for citizens. They are, for example, engaged in supporting smart cities. The foundation aims to develop openness and transparency by taking various types of public data and presenting them to society free of charge by using new technologies.
The ePaństwo Foundation moves a huge part of public open data from the “deep web” and makes them visible and accessible in the Internet in new ways by using modern web techniques. The collected public open data is from national registries, such as the:
- National Business Registry
- Supreme Audit Office
- Public procurements databases
- Scientific databases
- Patents databases
- National Electoral Commission
ePaństwo Foundation is one of the over 650 use cases published on the European Data Portal. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge on different applications and websites using open data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
