    The Open Data Directive - Europe’s Common Framework on Public Sector Information

    The Open Data Directive of the European Union of 2019 is an essential upgrade of previous Public Sector Information (PSI) Directives from 2003 and 2013. It is the public sector that has the pioneering role to lay the foundations for a growing data economy. The scope of the new Directive has been extended to public undertakings and to research data with a strong impetus on Open Science. With the Directive, EU Member States have agreed on a common legal framework on the re-use of open data across the continent. The fact that the same rules apply for all EU Member States within the EU Single Market and that these rules are also adopted by partnering countries makes this legal framework a valid benchmark on a global scale. The new concept of high value datasets aims to boost the availability and re-use of selected datasets alongside with improved data quality standards. The European Union is committed to open markets and the free flow of data, based on high European standards. Open data is a cornerstone of emerging European data spaces. The mission is to develop thriving data ecosystems through collaboration, innovation and research as fundamental European policies.
