About EU Vocabularies

The EU Vocabularies website provides access to vocabularies managed by the EU institutions and bodies. This includes controlled vocabularies, schemas, ontologies, data models, etc.

As part of the EU open data initiative, the EU Vocabularies website offers free public access to all of its content. The assets, information and documentation in this site are meant for a wide range of interests and user profiles. The occasional user can find metadata from a large number of controlled vocabularies. Specialised users, such as indexers, can access the multilingual thesaurus EuroVoc. Frequent and tech-savvy users will surely appreciate multiple formats available for download, alignments with other controlled vocabularies, versioning information and descriptive and release-related documentation. All types of users can choose to create their profile for a personalised interaction with the website.

The EU Vocabularies website replaces the EuroVoc and the Metadata Registry (MDR) sites and is managed by the Publications Office of the EU.
