Policy on open licenses by DIGG and PRV

Published: 21 April 2020

DIGG and PRV are, in an effort to give government authorities confidence in making data available, joining forces to develop a policy on the use of open licenses with regard to data. The idea is, thus, to increase the amount of data made available by government authorities.

The policy is expected to be presented after summer and to incorporate recommendations to government authorities regarding the use of open licenses (e.g., Creative Commons) as well as the utilisation of open data by one government authority obtained from others.
