The new Data Portal

Denmark has started an effort to modernize and improve the existing data catalogue. The new Data Portal will provide the users with an overview of the many types of available datasets available for re-use by companies, researchers and citizens.

The new Data Portal (Datavejviseren) will be launched in 2022 to solve the challenge users currently have in finding out which of the many data platforms to go to in order to find a particular data set.

The Data Portal will initially launch with the most significant public data sets and will thereafter continuously widen its overview by adding descriptions of the content and conditions of use of more valuable datasets. Those datasets most requested by users and those regarded as most important to address societal challenges (e.g. the green transition) will be prioritized.
