For our complex 21st century society to function well, citizens, governments and the private sector must exchange data. Our government and societal structures were established in the 20th century, way before the arrival of new technologies for data exchange. We challenge you to facilitate with your solution those parties that are in the business of (co-)creating new government services. Help them to overcome the obstacles relating to data usage and sharing between citizens, governments and the private sector. Identify barriers, research data activities and find ways to go over, under, or cut right through. Create new governance models or systems that facilitate data use and the sharing and creation of new public services. For example, set up new data collaboration frameworks that involve all stakeholders, so citizens can get the benefits to which they are entitled. Create ways for citizens to prototype new products using the same data any governmental organization can access.
Although your prototype will have very concrete applications, we challenge you to refer to a larger context. How is your prototype the first step towards a government-driven data DAO, a proper privacy-preserving framework for citizens or organizations to test the potential impact of unlocking their data, or something completely outside of current structures and systems? Using your prototypes and vision, we enable policy makers to change the rules and make your vision a reality.
