 Hi Friedrich,
> great to hear Civio is approaching this!  

 Well, at least we’ll try (very hard); so many things to fix around here! :D  
> The only way I’m using this right now is to integrate those with regards to EU agencies into OpenInterests.eu (http://OpenInterests.eu) (QuienManda for the EU ;). I would like to make the full dataset available, and of course a data standard would enable that extract to be used in shared tools.

 I saw OpenInterests, looks great; and I immediately thought about whether we can link/reuse some of that data from our side, but I haven’t had the chance to work on it for the last few months.

 What we want to do on our side is very similar to OpenTED, but for a very ugly spanish procurement site. So I don’t need your data right now, but I’ll definitely get in touch with you (and/or OpenContracting) when we start working on it, try to use the same data formats. In parallel we also need to scrape some ugly company register PDFs, I discussed it briefly with Open Corporates. All this, hopefully, at some point in 2014. ;)

 Can’t make it to the Brussels hackathon I’m afraid, but we’ll be around in OKCon.
