> Dear All,
> Six months ago we started the project to gather EU subsidy data here
> on these mailing lists and we received many enthusiastic and
> supportive responses and a ton of help from this community.
> Now we can proudly present to you: subsidystories.eu
> Here you can query, search, analyse all recipients and projects for
> the European Structural and Investment Funds (ERDF, ESF and CF) from
> 2007 to now for all EU Member States (except for Romania due to lack
> of data).
> Below you will find the Press Release.
> Do spread the word and check out the website: subsidystories.eu

> /Berlin, 06 March 2017 /- Today, Open Knowledge Germany and Open
> Knowledge International launched *SubsidyStories.eu*
> <http://subsidystories.eu/>: a database containing all recipients of
> EU Structural Funds, accounting for *292,9 Billion Euros* of EU Subsidies.
> The European Union allocates 44 % of its total 7-year budget through
> the European Structural Funds. Who received these funds - accounting
> for 347 Billion Euro from 2007 - 2013 and 477 Billion from 2014 - 2020
> - could only be traced through regional and local websites.
> Subsidystories.eu changes this by integrating all regional datasets
> into one database with all recipients of the European Structural and
> Investment Funds from 2007 onwards.

> Europe. For example, the amounts given per project are vastly
> different per country; in Poland the average sum per project is 381
> 664 E whereas in Italy this is only 63 539.
> The data can be compared throughout the EU enabling thorough analysis
> of EU spending patterns. Subsidystories.eu gives scientists,
> journalists and interested citizens the direct possibility of
> visualizing data and running data analytics using SQL. The data can be
> directly downloaded to CSV for the entire European Union or for
> specific countries.
> Beneficiary data, which was previously scattered across the EU in
