Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The EU is compiles its available databases from a wide range of institutions in its Open Data Portal. Besides its function as portal to all institutions, agencies and so forth the EU’s ODP also makes available meta data and provides a unique search structure leading to the original sources. This comparably new initiative is still growing and compiling its body of material. Norbert Hohn from the EUs publication office will explain what the portal opens up to and what opportunities it may hold for journalists and data journalists. The ODP is explicitly interested in learning the needs of various groups of users including journalists, so come and learn what’s there and join the dialogue on what’s on the wishlist of journalists and media.
