APIs4dgov survey on API strategies in government

In January 2018, the European Commission's DG CONNECT and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission launched the two yers APIs4DGov study. The aim of the study was to gain an understanding of the current use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) in digital government and their added value for public services. Within the study, the JRC is conducting this survey about API strategies and implementation activities.

This survey is aimed at those responsible for API strategies or particular projects implementing or using APIs and those who are considering implementing or using APIs. 

The results of the survey will support our studies on API for government to understand the state-of-the-play of government APIs across the EU and the goals, benefits and risks in their use.

The survey is divided into three parts:

  1. API strategies at different levels of government in your country;
  2. API implementation projects, either as part of a broader strategy or standalone;
  3. Potential EU action on APIs.
