To enhance innovation performance of enterprises throughout NWE regions

Project Summary

BE-GOOD is a pioneering project aiming to unlock, re-use and extract value from Public Sector Information (PSI) to develop innovative data-driven services in the area of infrastructure & environment.In a digital world, data is a key asset and a major source for innovation and economic growth. The market potential for re-using NWE PSI such as geospatial data is significant. Currently, the market for PSI-based services is limited as innovators face major barriers: - Lack of public body experience with the publication of PSI, limiting the availability of data.- Limited attention to end-user (commercial) potential of data, limiting relevance of data. - Shortage of links between PSI initiatives and SME solution providers, limiting market uptake.An estimated €300B added value remains untapped in Europe. BE-GOOD will tap into a portion estimated at €50M, and deliver 10 pilots to deliver commercial value from PSI, validated in >6 countries, and guidance on public data release and re-use. BE-GOOD uses a novel demand-driven approach, starting with public service delivery challenges common for public bodies across NWE to unlock appropriate datasets and engage with the marketplace. BE-GOOD’s main outputs will be: 10 novel commercial PSI-based services prototyped operationally, with the aim to market commercialise 5. Examples include applications, visualisations, software, or algorithms for traffic management, air and water quality monitoring and infrastructure maintenance planning. The long-term effects are twofold. Directly, the solutions will deliver financial and environmental benefits to 6 public bodies participating and inhabitants in related territories. SME solution providers can exploit the solution on the NWE and global market place. Indirectly, the project will disseminate through neutral platforms procedures on data release (including technical requirements, and licensing models) demonstrating public bodies viable ways to implement the PSI Directive 2013/37/EC.
