Ireland has made enormous strides in the development of Open Data since the beginning of the first Open Data Strategy in 2017, ranking highest for Open Data Maturity in the EU for three years running. I am pleased to present Ireland’s second five-year Open Data Strategy 2023-2027.

The goal of this strategy is for Ireland to continue to drive excellence in the provision of Open Data to promote transparency and innovation in Ireland.

The three pillars of the strategy are as follows:

  • Support Data Publishers
  • Provide services via the Open Data Platform
  • Engage Open Data Users to ensure transparency and relevance of the data provided
