It seems the European Union has launched a beta of its new European Data Portal in November 2015. Browsing the portal, I tried but failed to find out how is this different from the existing publicdata.eu data catalog, beyond having way more datasets (400k+ versus 47k) and having textual blog-like content on the former, which is absent on the latter. Publicdata.eu also has a link on the top directing users to the new portal. Is the new one supposed to replace the old one, or is it complementary?
Does anyone have more information on that?
