Description

It is especially important that the data that is made available also contributes practically
towards public benefit. Civil society, which has very deep and broad expertise in its specialist
areas, may thus need additional initiatives to fully be able to leverage the resource that open
data represents. Appropriate forms of collaboration are an important aspect in this respect,
for example. It is also important to consider the role this plays in developing government
policy. Enabling civil society to leverage open data to create a greater platform for analysis
and expertise in its specialist areas opens greater opportunities for civil society to come up
with proposed policies and initiatives.

It is also important that this type of innovation is not promoted for only one sector. DIGG
has therefore been commissioned to increase the capacity of the public sector to conduct
open and data-driven innovation in collaboration between research, industry and civil society.
DIGG is to trial the platform for open and data-driven innovation developed by the Swedish
Agency for Economic and Regional Growth: challengesgov.se, and to carry out
communication and promotion initiatives that seek to increase participation from start-ups,
small and medium-sized companies, civil society and other actors, e.g. international actors, on
the platform for open and data-driven innovation.

• Responsible actor: Agency for Digital Government (DIGG).
• Report to be submitted by: January 31st, 2021.
• Contributes towards OGP principles: Transparency, Technology and Innovation.
