OpenGovIntelligence has the objective of stimulate sustainable economic growth in Europe through fostering innovation in society and enterprises. Decision-making and allocation of limited resources enable data analytics and visualizations via the exploitation of Linked Open Statistical Data (LOSD). Towards this end, modernization of Public Administration with new processes, policies, and technologies should be achieved to enable the co-production of innovative data-driven public services.
