A citizen should have the possibility to check to which registers information about him/her has been recorded. Different options to realize this will be studied in year 1 of the Action Plan. In years 2 and 3 of the Action plan a viewing function for citizen’s own personal data and her right to re-use of personal data will be built to core registers of authorities. In year 1 of the Action Plan we will look into the training needs for open knowledge and organize a seminar jointly with the open data community, experts of access to information legislation and the office of the data ombudsman. In year 1 we will create a stable operational environ- ment to produce open data support services and tools: systematic training for finding, pro- cessing , harmonizing, publishing and utilizing open data.
