The main focus of this presentation is to compare open data policies in Central Europe, in particular in member countries of the Visegrad Group (also called V4, including: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia). Reports like annual Open Data Maturity by European Data Portal (EDP) suggest that there are significant differences between these countries. The comparison will be based on the revised open data policy cycle framework created by Zuiderwijk and Janssen (2014; Charalabidis, Zuiderwijk et al. 2018). It consists of 5 stages: policy environment, open data policy content, open data policy implementation, open data policy evaluation and open data policy change or termination. For every stage there are assigned detailed policy elements (e.g. political context, open data portal features, standards of opening data, key performance indicators, etc.). Results of this research show that Poland is the most advanced V4 country within this scope, the Czech Republic is closing to the leaders, while Hungary and Slovakia are below European average.
