STIRData Action will apply the Linked Data paradigm, i.e., a set of design principles to establish links between datasets that are understandable to both human beings and machines, to company data (e.g. data on economic activities, representatives, geographical locations, etc.). In particular, the Action seeks to assist data providers through a set of data specifications, guidelines, and an accompanying harmonisation toolset for streamlining and facilitating the process of enriching and publishing company data as Linked Data.

An online platform will be developed for searching, analysing, and visualising, in a homogeneous way, company-related open data content coming from different sources, e.g. company registries, sources discoverable via the European Data Portal (EDP) and other open data platforms. The offered functionalities will be exposed via an open API, so that they can be reused by other digital public services or applications developed by data and ICT companies.

At the end of the Action, data referring to at least 1.5 million companies from at least 5 different countries will be made available via the STIRData platform. The enhanced datasets will be also published in the national open data portals of Greece (, Norway (, and Czechia ( so that they can be harvested by the EDP.
