> 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
