As a first step and as a way for the public sector to lead the way, government bodies should be appointed to make such data that is considered to have high potential in terms of development, innovation, collaboration and commercial exploitation as accessible as possible. Collaboration with civil society forms part of this commitment, including representatives from civil society joining DIGG’s reference group to conduct a needs analysis and to survey impacts at This work will be launched with three workshops in late summer 2019.

The Government has tasked DIGG with particularly promoting data domains with major potential (I2019/01416/DF, I2019/01020/DF). Within this remit, the agency is initially to prioritise data in the following areas: traffic, labour market, health, geodata and open research data. The work is to be carried out in dialogue and consultation with a range of agencies and other actors affected, including sectoral agencies responsible for these areas and the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR). DIGG must also take into account the Swedish Research Council’s work on open research data and Vinnova’s work on open innovation. As well as increasing the capacity of the public sector to make open data accessible, DIGG is also to develop support and guidelines particularly geared towards the needs of those making further use of the data.
