Open Statistical Data Interoperability Framework


The Action will contribute to the Public Open Data DSI by developing a framework that will allow interoperability between national statistical portals and the European Data portal, and the deployment of cross-border services that reuse European statistical open datasets from those portals.

More particularly, the Action will perform a set of scientific, technical and legal-related activities to investigate and provide a set of solutions to achieve the following specific objectives:

  • Enable interoperability among different national statistical portals and the European Data Portal through the adoption of standards and tools to automate metadata harmonisation and data publication;
  • Provide standards, methodologies, and tools to achieve data harmonisation in the field of open data statistics;
  • Provide uniform technical interfaces for a simple re-use of statistical information through the adoption of CEF Context Broker Building Block and the implementation of the ETSI NGSI-LD API specification;
  • Validate the technical solutions provided in the Action, through the deployment and piloting of cross-border services in the domain of Population and Households Census, reusing statistical data in combination with open datasets.

INTERSTAT is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union under the Grant Agreement no INEA/CEF/ICT/A2019/2063524.
