Just before Christmas, we launched an important element of the Commission's Open Data Policy: a portal site for data held by the Commission, the European Environment Agency, and potentially other institutions and bodies of the Union.
We have launched it in beta version, and we would love you to try it out and give us feedback while we continue to work on the capabilities and the content of the site. The site provides, for the first time, a single point of access to data held by different departments of the Commission, making it easy to find and retrieve datasets currently published on a multitude of different sites and portals. It currently also includes data from the European Environment Agency. And that's not all: other institutions of the Union can publish there, and we hope that in time it will give access to data from more and more EU bodies.
