The European Data Portal (EDP) harvests metadata from the publication of open datasets in national, regional and local portals across the European Union, and seeks to improve the accessibility and usability of EU public sector information. As well as operating as a portal, the EDP provides training materials and guidance for open data publishers and reusers. To date, the EDP references just over 600,000 datasets from 34 countries and translates metadata into 18 languages. In addition to increasing the accessibility of open data, the EDP also supports public administrations in their endeavour to publish high quality datasets. Training material has been designed, along a full suite of examples of open data reuse, reports and resources to inspire data publishers. Data reuse is also promoted and showcased on the portal, as a tangible illustration of the benefits of open data.
