Data Story

Public transport
In the new phase of the pandemic, the world is taking its first steps in loosening the restrictive measures, while trying to make sure that social distancing can always be achieved. This created difficulties for the public transportation systems, as they can get very crowded. Some guidelines are set up to support policymakers and citizens to adjust according to the new situation. Also, some alternatives to the use of cars and public transportation are provided, assisted by data-related initiatives.

Open Data Maturity in Europe

The open data maturity study serves as a benchmark to gain insights into the development achieved in the field of open data in Europe. It assesses the level of maturity against four dimensions: policy, portal, impact, and quality. The study clusters countries into four different groups: trend-setters, fast-trackers, followers, and beginners, from the most mature to the least. Recommendations tailored to the level of maturity and characteristics of each of these groups are  provided. Read the latest report here.
