The European Commission has launched a quality-assured beta version of the European Data Portal, with more than 240,000 datasets, at the European Data Forum. An international consortium, which is led by Capgemini and of which con terra is a member, is responsible for the implementation.

The European Data Portal (www.europeandataportal.eu) enables fast and simple searching of open data from 34 European countries and supports their systematic onward use. Open data comprises information gathered, generated or purchased by public institutions that may be used, modified and shared freely by anyone. A recently published study by Capgemini Consulting estimates the immediate market volume for open data within Europe over the next five years at 325 billion euros. The European Commission aims to use the European Data Portal to simplify access to this data, in order to more successfully tap into its enormous economic potential. However, state administrations, research institutes and the general public also stand to benefit from open data, thanks to the optimised administrative processes, increased transparency and improved possibilities for participation associated with it.

The Internet and digital technologies are shaping our world by the day – it is no longer surprising that they reach every walk of life and cross every line of business.

However, the law is unable to keep pace with the rapid rate of technological development. According to data from the European Commission (EC), only 15 percent of Europeans shop online because of current regulations. Additionally, small online businesses wishing to trade in other European Union countries face extra costs of around 9,000 euros in order to adapt to national laws. The reason is simple: there is currently no Digital Single Market (DSM) in the EU.
