About the Workshop

On 6 May 2015, the ISA Programme of the European Commission will host a workshop on core data models for public administrations. The workshop is organized in the context of the ISA Action 1.1 on semantic interoperability and invites e-Government experts to share their experience with the development, management and applications of core data models, i.e. foundational data models that capture the fundamental characteristics of data entities in a context-neutral fashion. The use of core data models guarantees a minimum level of cross-sector and/or cross-border semantic interoperability.

In the last decade, several core data models have been created by public administrations and standardisation organisations to foster interoperability. You can visit the last year's workshop page and the Community's of Practice workspace for detailed information.
