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. They also encourage Estonia to undertake a more thorough study of the socio-economic impact of open data and exchange knowledge with other European countries. Esther Huyer
Local open data: Why and where to start?
When Brett Goldstein started his job as the City of Chicago’s Chief Data Officer in 2011, the city had already taken its first steps in publishing open data. It had an open data portal with some datasets, it had an open data community interested in engaging with the data, but overall not much progress was being made. Everything changed when, in the same year, a new mayor took office, for whom data-driven decision-making and opening up the city’s vast data resources to the public was a priority.

A new paradigm in cultural data: Focus on user needs instead of mass digitization
The year 2020 was special for cultural data and digital culture for several reasons. To the broader public this meant visiting exhibitions and theater plays virtually while sitting on their sofa due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From a narrower, policy-making perspective, 2020 marked the Year of Digital Culture – a policy initiative that aimed to promote new forms of culture driven by the use of digital technologies. As a result of this initiative, a report will be launched in January 2021 summarizing the state of Estonian digital culture and open cultural data. Based partly off of this report

A guide for effective data sharing in the development sector
The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data has recently published a ‘cookbook’ describing the key ingredients for effective multiparty data sharing in the development sector. Multiparty data sharing involves two or more organisations that collaborate to collect, share, and/or analyse data to address societal challenges. Despite the initiatives to better leverage data sharing, only a few spaces provide knowledge and common insight on how to effectively share data. The cookbook attempts to address this gap. The cookbook is based on insights from the analysis of data sharing
