Hi

I suppose W3C's DCAT would be a candidate in this case. http://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dcat/

Subject: Classification of open datasets...

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,
