The digitalisation of society is happening rapidly and as globalisation and urbanisation increase, open data is considered one of our most important raw materials. Open data refers to public sector information, available for anyone to use without any requirements other than indication of source and relicensing. Increased use of open data can contribute to more innovative ideas and to greater transparency in public activities, and generate social benefits for citizens and businesses.
All countries participating in SCORE will develop a test-bed, which is open for participation by other actors as well. Johanneberg Science Park is leading the work on implementing results and solutions in the different countries’ test-beds. This enables the development of an international ecosystem of knowledge exchange, which helps to develop how open data can be used and create jobs, both in Sweden and internationally.
Sharing data in the SCORE project is expected to lead to significantly reduced traffic flow and reduced carbon dioxide emissions. Together, these nine cities have the combined expertise and knowledge needed, something they wouldn't have if acting individually. SCORE enables the cities to combine their resources to create social benefits together.
