The EU Budget Vocabulary and its RDF serialisation are designed to facilitate the exchange, increase the understandability and foster the reusability of budgetary information published by the EU. The Vocabulary aims to increase government transparency by improving the availability, usability and understandability of the EU Budget.
It is important to note that the EU Budget Vocabulary is aimed ONLY at the EU budget and not those of the Member States.
EU Budget as Linked Open data
In order to support the publication of the EU Budget as Linked Open Data,
- the EU Budget Vocabulary is published in RDF; and
- a persistent URI was created: http://data.europa.eu/3rx/.
The EU Budget as LOD is available via http://data.europa.eu/euodp/en/linked-data#. For more information about how to query the data, refer to the example queries at https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/solution/eu-budget-vocabulary/about.
