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.

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.
