Like! aims to significantly enhance the capacity of the public sector to facilitate and deliver innovation, resulting in the development of a wide range of services using innovative solutions to deliver better public services.
Like! is a €4.2M Interreg Vb project that I set up in 2016 to stimulate innovation in the public sector, and to deliver new solutions that improved public services.
Smart Cities prioritised improving customer services, adopting user profiling in service design/deliver, and exploring the potential of wireless services.
The project used a combination of co-design, targeted academic research, and mainstreaming/public engagement approaches to deliver high-impact and high-profile results that were used to make cities smarter across Europe.
OpeningUp looked at how governments could use social media to deliver better services, and how to leverage the potential of open data to deliver better targeted and more effective services.
