Blog Post #1: We Launched!
Throughout the last few years, there is a vivid discussion around reshaping and innovating public sector. A number of interesting and difficult to answer questions come up in mind when thinking towards this direction:
- How to identify, monitor, early detect and assess public administrations’ needs?
- How to timely get aware of emerging technological assets that can respond to such needs?
- How to effectively identify external framework factors that affect public sector activities?
- How can recent breakthroughs such as Big Data, Linked Open Data and the Semantic Web, IoT, Cloud Computing etc. help?
We at Big Policy Canvas target to provide as convincing as possible answers to the previous questions! To succeed, we target to engage all relevant stakeholders (e.g. public sector, enterprises, citizens, researchers) and form an unprecedented knowledge base, stimulating research directions and recommendations towards building a more effective, efficient, precise and evidence-based public sector!
