Public-Data Opportunity

As Europe grapples with citizens’ demands for better, more targeted public services, the Lisbon Council launches The Public-Data Opportunity: Why Governments Should Share More, a discussion paper that looks at the state of play for public-sector data sharing – and calls for better protocols and procedures to deliver more data-driven public services to all Europeans. The discussion paper analyses the importance of data-sharing between European Union public agencies, identifies the barriers and proposes seven policy recommendations that will help lift them. It builds on the research conducted by the “Understanding Value Co-Creation in Public Services for Transforming European Public Administrations” project, or Co-VAL, a 12-partner research consortium, co-funded by the European Union. The discussion paper was launched at The 2019 Digital Government Conference convened by the Government of Finland at the Presidency of the Council of the European Union summit in Helsinki, Finland.
