The technological development of the last decades made it possible to accumulate a large amount of data on every aspect of our public or private life. Not many of us know that a large part of those data are publicly available: several public administrations are already publishing large data sets, that citizen could use to generate innovative applications to change the way we live, move, use the city and the territory.
There is a clear gap between the opportunities offered by the abundance of open data
and the citizens’ capability to imagine new ways of using such data. The OPEN4CITIZENS EU project worked to reduce such gap. It involved citizens into co-design initiatives (hackathons campaigns), together with IT experts, public administrations, interest groups and start-up companies, in order to develop new services to improve urban quality and certain aspects of their everyday life. In each of the five pilot locations (Copenhagen, Karlstad, Rotterdam, Milano and Barcelona) the project gave birth to OpenDataLabs that will become the reference point for all citizens and interest groups that want to propose innovative applications based on open data.
The OpenData Policy of the Milano Municipality will be presented together with the openDATALAB of Milano and the European Network of OpenDataLabs (NOODL.EU).
