The Talk of Europe (TOE) project has created a Linked Open Dataset with data from and about the European Parliament (EP). The proceedings of the parliamentary debates as published by the EP, including all available translations, were converted to RDF and enriched with datasets of biographical and political information about the speakers. The ToE project officially ran from from 2014 to 2015 and has continued to make improved and updated versions of the data available online. The current dataset that is archived here contains all debates from summer 1999 until summer 2017.

The dataset is documented in a publication: Astrid van Aggelen, Laura Hollink, Max Kemman, Martijn Kleppe, Henri Beunders. The debates of the European Parliament as Linked Open Data. Semantic Web, vol. 8, no. 2, pp. 271-281, 2017, IOS Press. A pre-print is added to this dataset as onderzoeksdocumentatie_preprint.pdf. This pre-print relates to the previous version of this dataset. Changes to the dataset with respect to the descrition in the publication are listed in the file Changes.txt.
