Dear all,

over the past two years, the LATC project [1] (Linked Open Data 
Around-The-Clock) has worked on converting more than 20 EU datasets to 
RDF, make them available as Linked Data and SPARQL, and link them to 
other datasets. The datasets have gone through internal quality 
assurance against a publication checklist [2]. LATC supports the EU Open 
Data Portal initiative and aims to bootstrap the creation of an EU 
dataset cloud by this effort. The datasets include several business, 
legal and statistical datasets such as CORDIS, the European Commission 
Financial Transparency System, EUR-Lex, EuroStat and many more. A full 
list of all converted datasets with pointers to their landing pages can 
be found at:

Please spread the word. We appreciate your feedback! [3]
