Dear All

Today we are releasing an API for some of the most important official
EU-databases (EUR-Lex, PreLex and Council public votes). The API can
be used for research, to create data visualizations or one can build
applications upon it.

The API can be found here: http://api.epdb.eu/

As a start we are giving away 50 API keys for the ones interested. The
limitations on the number of API keys is to make sure we have enough
resources to serve our users. Should the demand exceed this we will
have to look into scaling our solution.

We will enter the API to the Open Data Challenge contest:
http://opendatachallenge.org/ - and you can use it to make your own
entries to the contest if you want (29 days left).

Best regards,
 Niels Erik Rasmussen
