The European Data Portal harvests the metadata of public sector information available on public data portals across European countries. Portals can be national, regional, local or domain specific and cover the 28 EU Member States, EEA, countries involved in the EU's neighbourhood policy, Switzerland and EU portals such as the EU Open Data Portal. Going beyond the harvesting of metadata, the strategic objective of the European Data Portal is to improve accessibility and increase the value of Open Data. The European Data Portal addresses the whole data value chain: from data publishing to data re-use. Within the portal, sections are dedicated to searching datasets, providing data, using data, training and a library https://www.europeandataportal.eu/en/what-we-do/our-activities. NOTE - THERE ARE TWO EUROPEAN OPEN DATA PORTALS - SEE ALSO THE SESSION ON THE EU DATA PORTAL ON SATURDAY
