Hi!

Many countries are developing national portals with metadata about
open datasets from the public sector. To make datasets easier to find
and to lower the threshold for pan-european (or global) re-use it
would be great if classification of datasets followed a shared
taxonomy.

There are many candidates that could be used, e.g. Eurovoc [1], NACE
[2]. I would be grateful for any pointers if there is work going on to
harmonize classification of datasets on a global or European level.

Regards,
