"When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be."
Lord Kelvin

Data Publication for EU citizens – 2015/1

Transparency is a basic condition in spending public money.

This is true for EU funds collected from taxpayers of developed EU Member States. The data reported here by CRCB would like serve this aim by sharing all important elementary data of EU funded Hungarian projects and supported organizations for the period 2004-2012 in a well structured format. The sources of information were the Hungarian government websites, though they do not allow to download elementary data with a simple, structured format (xlsx or ods). Therefore, this task was carried out by CRCB. We downloaded, restructured and presented information on 58,161 and 40,832 EU funded projects.

The cost of data downloading, restructuring and data sharing was 450 Euros paid by the CRCB.
