About this tool
The Big Policy Canvas Knowledge Base is a state-of-the-art, online and dynamic repository that functions as an accumulator uniting all the knowledge produced during the project. It is structured along the three dimensions of needs, trends and assets and furthermore offers a mapping among them by defining how they are interconnected and how they influence each other.

The Aragon Open Data initiative started in 2012 by the Aragon Government. It is a portal where open data are shown in reusable format with the main objective of being used by other people or companies to develop software and services for citizens, thus creating economic wealth through the reuse of information and the fostering of transparency.
Database providing comparable indicators covering all regions of Europe. The ESPON 2013 Database provides fundamental regional information provided by ESPON projects and EUROSTAT. This information can be used to support territorial development analysis at different geographical levels. The Database supports better understanding of past and future trends in different types of European territories and makes possible to benchmark your region and city in the European context.
The European Data Portal harvests the metadata of Public Sector Information available on public data portals across European countries. Information regarding the provision of data and the benefits of re-using data is also included
The RING is a global directory of datasets and data services for the agri-food sector. It is the principal tool created through the CIARD initiative to allow information providers to register their services and datasets in various categories and so facilitate the discovery of sources of agriculture-related information across the world
The RASFF (Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed) portal features an interactive searchable online database. It gives public access to summary information about the most recently transmitted RASFF notifications as well as the ability to search for information on any notification issued in the past

This use case covers the methods that can assist policymakers throughout all stages of the policy cycle. It explains the sources for these data and how the outputs can be used to gain. understanding of stakeholders’ and citizen’s opinions on policies and strategies
The Smart Fire Department could be one aspect of a Smart Government scenario. Intelligently networked objects such as smoke detectors, smartphones, surveillance cameras and drones can support the work of the fire department thus leading to tracking behaviour, enhanced situational awareness, sensor-driven decision analytics, process optimisation, optimised resource consumption, complex autonomous systems.
Sensors perfect the transport infrastructures by reporting automatically about its utilisation and current condition. Sensor-generated information about the stress on roads, tracks, canals, bridges and tunnels helps civil engineering authorities to better estimate the condition of the infrastructure. They recognise and repair damages in the transport infrastructure in order to ensure an optimal traffic flow. This is supplemented by indications from citizens via apps.
