The project’s third User Board meeting aimed to discuss progress of pilots’ rollout and to review the COMSODE deliverables focused on methodologies and Open Data Node software. The meeting took place on May 28-29, 2015 in Vienna City Hall.
In February 2015, a new Open Data project has been started by the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic. The goal of this project is to establish standards and define procedure of publishing Open Data by public bodies in Czech Republic.
COMSODE has been designed around a need to publish quality data, enable their easy re-use and support businesses in building their services based on this data. This process is driven by governments implementing currently the PSI directive (deadline 6/2015) and non-govenmental sector, exploiting open data for transparency purposes. But the question stays: Where is the business?
Members of COMSODE team, Jan Gondol (Slovak Ministry of Interior) and Peter Hanečák (EEA communication solutions) gave interesting presentation about open government and open data in the context of the Open Government Partnership.
Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a platform for domestic reformers committed to making their governments more open, accountable and responsive to citizens. Slovakia has been involved in Open Data activities, and is expecting to further promote Open Educational Resources, Open Access, as well as Open Source in the public sector.

However, their publication with Open Data Node will bring a lot of new benefits for the consumers of the datasets, e.g., transformation to Linked Open Data, rich API or search capabilities on top of the data.
