Research proposal: Leveraging regional growth with public sector open data
2012 (English)In: The 35th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia – IRIS 2012: Designing the Interactive Society, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
During the last years, spotlight has landed on the digitally formed ‘open data’ as both a main ingredient of open government (Lathrop et al. 2010) with its focus on transparency and participation (Meijer et al. 2012), and as a mean for forming a new information market and leveraging new digital services (Cox et al. 2003), (Janssen 2011a). This new phenomena has led the public sector into a changed relationship with citizens (Maier-Rabler et al. 2011), and has also opened the door for citizens to interpret the previously closed public sector data into new innovative services and new truths (Margetts 2011). Still it is not yet clear how the relation with citizens as service developers can be made to work, and empirical findings reveal a major uncertainty about this relation and its characteristics.This research proposal sets out to explore the relationship between data owners in public sector and service developers/owner that utilises public sector open data in order to find answers to how this relation can be made to leverage regional growth. Used methods are qualitative case studies of two Swedish municipals, in combination with a netnography study of a citizen initiated discussion forum about public sector open data.
