Project Pilots

Trafford Worklessness Pilot

The Trafford Worklessness Pilot produced a suite of applications that visualised linked open statistical data, and other open data sources, to identify areas of need and inform service delivery relating to worklessness. These applications were developed by the Trafford Data Lab in a co-creative effort with work coaches from the Jobcentre Plus in Stretford and council leads for worklessness from across Greater Manchester. Swirrl, the pilot's technical partner, modelled and stored the linked data.


Flemish Government

The Flemish Government utilizes the OGI ICT Toolkit to enhance their environmental policy making in terms of timely publication of the actual state of affairs related to environment, evaluations of the permits policy, and develop tools to benchmark the pollution of companies to others working in the same economical domain. Insight into the location of polluters were created, benchmarks with other geographical area and the impact of population on society. An environmental dashboard was created empowering citizens, with maps data on geographic map and connect datasets, previously disconnected.


The Greek Ministry of Administrative Reconstruction (MAREG)

MAREG uses the OpenGovIntelligence ICT Toolkit to improve the monitoring and management of Government Vehicles used by all Greek Public Agencies. Thousands of vehicles are owned by the government and little is known about their use. The data that MAREG possesses for this monitoring and management originate from different sources was not properly be defined, structured. In the pilot this data was disclosed and combined into new insights about the consumption of fuel, the purpose and the age of vehicles information. This information will facilitate internal decision making about the renewal of the fleet and the governance. Furthermore, this can result in increased transparency towards the public and better fleet management can save money.


Irish Marine Institute

Ireland’s national agency for marine research, technology development and innovation, uses the OpenGovIntelligence toolkit and co-creation to convert their oceanographic observations and measurements data to Linked Open Statistical Data enriching data with information from other Linked Data resources to create dashboards empowering governments, companies and citizens. The new insights results in benefits in three main domains 1) maritime search and rescue, 2) marine renewable energy development and 3) maritime tourism and leisure.


Enterprise Lithuania

The objective of this pilot is to identify the needs of business for exploiting LOSD, developing new user-friendly tools for businesses to help them benchmark their business ideas in the overall context of Lithuania business, providing tools for enabling businesses co-create applications using LOSD, and helping businesses to co-create value from LOSD. This co-creation process can result in entrepreneur starting new businesses and by current businesses to expand their business and in this way contributing to economic growth.


The Estonian Ministry of Economics

The Estonian Ministry uses of the OGI ICT Toolkit to address issues in the Estonian real estate market such as timely publication of data and information asymmetry. In order to best identify the barriers facing transparency in the Estonian real estate sector co-creation have been carried out with all stakeholders from the private sector, the public sector, and the Estonian public at large.
