Transparency in politics: Open Government Data and How to scale information

„Transparency in politics means structuring information. Just data doesn’t give you anything.“ Clemens Maria Schuster at our Pantalk.

'Digital' has changed the roles of the state, the government, the private sector, start-ups, and the civil society. Nevertheless, using an open data approach, a governing body can create the foundation for a lasting, sustainable progress.

Get insights from – a Swiss civic-tech startup dealing with open government data (#ogd). We collect, aggregate, refine those data and make them useful. Thus, transparency in politics is enhanced on a large scale just by using existing data. In fact, the whole political process gets immediately much more trustworthy and relevant for all stakeholders, especially the people.
