Researchers’ access to detailed government data reflected in 15 ministry roadmaps

The government has published the 15 ministerial roadmaps for an ambitious policy of opening up and exploiting public data for public action. Coordinated by the Interministerial Digital Directorate (DINUM), and following the report of the Bothorel mission on data openness, these documents, drafted by each ministry, describe their strategies in terms of data, algorithms and source codes, within a shared interministerial framework, and set out in a concrete action plan over 2 to 3 years.

DINUM will also publish a charter for administrations on how to make data available to researchers, as well as a vade mecum describing access procedures to help researchers.
