Description of app: In terms of volume, content and structure, EU open data is exceptionally complex, which makes its usage challenging for small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The app aims to provide SMEs in the field of agriculture with direct access to better and more detailed information to help them become part of the green restructuring of EU industry.

Description of app: How is Europe performing on its environmental commitments? The application quantifies environmental issues, identifies risk factors and measures the effectiveness of interventions. Analysing data, combining indexes by countries and regions, and evaluating Horizon 2020 expenditures and impacts related to environmental projects, the app, says the team, will provide an assessment of the amount spent in each country and insights on the outcomes, as well as a verification of the Horizon 2020 digital transformation initiatives and forecasts for the future.

Description of app: Circular Economy requires a systemic overview of waste streams and their environmental impacts. Building on datasets acquired from local governments in 11 regions within 9 EU countries, the open-source platform for waste flow mapping and analytics, designed within the Horizon 2020 projects REPAIR and CINDERELA, connects regional industrial waste-producers with respective waste treatment facilities. The proposed app focuses on creating waste impact profiles for each waste producing company. For governments, the platform indicates which economic sectors, materials, and locations need to be tackled to achieve the highest reductions in emissions. For companies, it allows a comparison of their emissions related to waste output with those of their competitors.
