According to the assessment, Ireland is best in class in Europe with an overall open data maturity of 96% followed closely by Spain (94%), the Netherlands (92%), France (91%) and Finland (90%).
The assessment, which was carried out by Capgemini Consulting on behalf of the European Commission, is the third in a series of annual studies and explores the level of Open Data Maturity in the EU28. A series of indicators were selected to measure Open Data maturity including the level of development of Open Data policies, an assessment of the features available on national Open Data portals as well as the expected impact of Open Data.
