The EU FAR project


The key objective of the EU FAR project is to stimulate development of granular open data on EU funding. To this end, the work will be conducted for Romania by providing open data aligned with the FAIR movement (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability). Information publicly displayed by the project is focused on the EU funds absorbed by local governments in Romania (LAU 2 level). The project will cover available data for the entire programming period of 2014-2020.
The activities involve a mix of policy analysis and dissemination work targeting relevant stakeholders at various levels: local, county, regional, national and EU levels. A special focus will be placed on rural areas. Deliverables include open database, policy briefs, conference paper, presentations and an open-access academic article. The processing and public display of data will make use of Research Data Alliance (RDA) outputs. The project’s deliverables will be disseminated with the support of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) services and products. The project team envisages a sustainability plan to ensure further uptake of project’s outputs at a larger scale.
The project has a presentation in both Romanian and English on RIQL website -
