Commitment Aim:

This commitment aimed to provide citizens with access to studies and reports that were funded using public money. According to the current regulatory framework these studies were to be uploaded to the Depository for State Treasure Studies. Because only a small percentage of studies is currently published, this commitment aspires to enforce a legal mandate to employ the Diavgeia Transparency Portal as the single point for submitting studies.[Note 120: OGP, “Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) Progress Report 2016–2018: Greece”,] However, the commitment language is vague and thus the potential impact remained unclear.


Midterm: Not Started

At the midterm evaluation there was no evidence to indicate the progress status of this commitment. It was unclear which areas the regulatory amendment should improve. Additionally, the government self-assessment report made no mention of this commitment.

End of Term: Not Started

According to the PoC there has been no progress in implementing this commitment.[Note 121: Nancy Routzouni, national point of contact, response to IRM researcher questionnaire, September 2018.]

Did It Open Government?

Access to information: Did Not Change

Since commitment implementation has not yet started there has been no change in government practice.

Carried forward?

There is no indication that this commitment will be carried forward. The government could specify the content of the regulatory intervention. A representative from Open Technologies Alliance (GFOSS) noted that it would be useful for researchers and civil society alike to develop a specific methodology to ensure that all research and studies paid for by the government are available in the system. These documents could also make use of the Creative Commons license, allowing them to be reused. The government could make the uploading of publicly funded studies and research on the Diavgeia Transparency Portal a prerequisite for completing payment for the study.[Note 122: OGP, “Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) Progress Report 2016–2018: Greece”,
