„Cooperation Open Government Data Austria“, or short „Cooperation OGD Austria“ was founded by the Federal Chancellery, the cities of Vienna, Linz, Salzburg and Graz on the 13th July 2011. Federal Government, States, cities and towns in cooperation with the communities, science, culture and the economy are willing to set the basic agreements for the future of Open Government Data in Austria. By agreeing on common standards an effective framework for the benefit of all stakeholders should be created. The collaboration between Germany – Austria – Switzerland- and Liechtenstein (D-A-CH-LI) will be intensified. The Cooperation represents the interests of ministries, states, cities and communities – to unite all actors who operate, plan or create an open government data platform. The Federal Chancellery is the link to Competence Center Internet Society (KIG) and the Platform Digital Austria.
Reference documents of sub-working groups of the Cooperation OGD Austria get published as agreements and drafts at the common reference server.

- Information which is not completely covered by „public domain“ (license-free) has to be licensed under the Creative Commons License CC-BY-3.0 AT. Special provisions extending the regulations of CC-BY-3.0 AT have to be published as netiquette.
- After a positive test of the German version of CC-BY 4.0, the following procedure is proposed:
The use of the CC-BY.4.0 is to be pre-announced on the respective data portals and with a deadline for all previously published records and all new records. No stability break is seen for data users, since the license update does not lead to any worsening of the data users. For licensees who have received the data under the old license, this still applies. This does not have to be mentioned in the data portal. However, access to a current record, which is then under version 4.0, causes the use of the data under version 4.0.
- The ADMS 2.1 metadata schema of OGD Austria will be published in the repository of the ISA program
- 27.09.2016: Brigitte Lutz is unanimously elected speaker of the Cooperation OGD Austria for one more year.
