It’s finally here, published today: the proposal for the EU High Value Data list. The list for the first time makes open data publication mandatory for government concerning (for now) 6 themes (geographic information, meteorology, mobility, statistics, earth observation and environment, and company information). Already in September 2020 an impact assessment and advice on policy options was delivered to the European Commission. I was part of that assessment team, and responsible for the themes Meteorology, Earth Observation and environment. Now we get to see what has been proposed to be implementend in law. I haven’t read it yet, will do that tomorrow first thing, but wanted to share the link here. There’s a window for feedback on the proposal open until 21 June 2022.
