Time is passing quickly and YourDataStories (YDS), the research project, co-funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon2020 research initiative, on making opendata more accessible and transparent, is already beyond the first year of its three years project duration.

The first year was full of first steps: Setting up the consortium, creating the necessary project structures and communication lines as well as establishing a basis for the actual development. Activities ranged from setting up the technical infrastructure to gathering and analysing the main user requirements for the envisioned application.The YourDataStories Consortium also created an early version of a prototype, incorporating many of the first requirements. This allowed for much more detailed feedback rounds with end users through dedicated focus groups. These evaluation sessions were conducted by the user-partners for each of the three use case scenarios the project is working on:

  • Follow Public Money all the way in Greece
  • Tracking Development Aid in the Netherlands
  • Cross-Europe Financial Comparability
