Project description

Summary

The project will investigate the possibilities to define an easy-to-use, powerful, and flexible standard
interface for communication of statistical data and metadata between the dissemination databases of
statistics producers (statistical agencies) and citizen-centric applications, developed by entrepreneurs
or by citizens themselves. A consortium consisting of members from Estonia, Iceland, and Sweden
will run the project in the form of a network. In addition to the consortium members, interested
entrepreneurs and other actors from government agencies and private business, even outside the
Nordic-Baltic countries, will be invited to participate in the network. Three major seminars will be
organised in Estonia, Iceland, and Sweden during 2011. In addition to producing its own
conclusions concerning the problems, opportunities, and possible solutions of citizen-centric access
to statistics, the project will prepare for full-scale development and implementation projects, to be
proposed for the next phase of the Nordic-Baltic initiative on Citizen-Centric eGovernment Services,
and within the broader framework of the European R&D program.

Goal

To investigate the possibilities to define an easy-to-use, powerful, and flexible standard interface for
communication of statistical data and metadata between the dissemination databases of statistics
producers (statistical agencies) and citizen-centric applications, developed by entrepreneurs or by
citizens themselves.
