BE - Open Data portal

(OpenBelgium.be)
Whether we talk about government data, scientific, medical or technological knowledge: in a lot of areas, there is a (big) tension between opening up data, or not to do so out of commercial or other interests. With OpenBelgium.be, we want to strive to open up as much data as possible and to make that data easily available & usable. That way, people can be informed better, software developers can work with the data to create interesting applications, and scientists can build upon freely available research data.
