Users shall be enabled to easily search and find data they need for the most different purposes.

The first report on ‘The Use Case Observatory’ is now available on the data.europa.eu. This research tracks 30 open data reuse cases from 2022 to 2025 with the goal of assessing how open data creates impact, sharing the challenges and successes of reuse, and contributing to the debate on open data impact assessment methodology. The 30 use cases for the study were selected from over 600 reuse cases collected from the EU Open Data Maturity assessments, EU Datathon and data.europa.eu use case repository. They were grouped according to the four dimensions of open data impact, used also in the Open
