The projects

The Concept of Openness

Open Data

Open data is data that everyone can freely access and that can be used, changed and shared by everyone. They are generated and collected in many applications, for example in official measurements or scientific experiments.

Open Government

Politics and administration should be opened to citizens, business, science, art and culture in order to enable stronger common interests in a community. The focus is on transparency, participation and collaboration.

Civic Tech

Technical concepts can promote engagement and participation of citizens, for example through appropriate communication platforms, better public infrastructures and technology-based improvements in the common good.
