Enabling the European Business Graph for Innovative Data Products and Services

Contact persons


euBusinessGraph represents a key initiative to simplify and disrupt the cross-border and cross-lingual collection, reconciliation, aggregation, and provisioning and analytics of company-related data from authoritative and non-authoritative public or private sector sources, with the aim of enabling cross-sectorial innovation.

The basic idea behind the euBusinessGraph project is two-fold.

Firstly, the creation of a "business graph" – a highly interconnected graph of Europe-wide company-related information both from authoritative and non-authoritative sources (including data both from the public and private sector).

Secondly, providing the reliable provisioning of the business graph in the form of a data marketplace that in turn will enable the creation of a set of data-driven products and services via a set of six corresponding business cases:

  1. Corporate Events Data Service (OpenCorporates)
  2. Tender Discovery Service (CERVED)
  3. B2B Lead Generation Service (SDATI, ATOKA)
  4. CRM Service (EVRY)
  5. Data Journalism Product (DW)
  6. Norwegian Registries API Service (BRC)
