Data for All. Data-driven Public Service Delivery in the North Sea Region

Portfolio Description

The Project

Data for All brings together 19 partners from different areas and sectors in the North Sea Region (NSR) in order to share knowledge and experience in dealing with municipal and regional data, as well as to drive forward innovative solutions for its utilisation. A total of seven pilots will be realized, located in Smarte KielRegion (DE), Brest Metropole (FR), Intercommunale Leiedal (BE), Province Drenthe (NL), Vejle Kommun (DK), Kungsbacka Kommun (SE) and Eigersund Kommune (NO).

The organizational and technical solutions developed in the frame of Data for All are based on common European standards and are transferable to other municipalities in the NSR and in Europe. Transnational cooperation is the key to all activities in Data for All, realized through a regular information exchange in the partner regions, organized through various channels. Particularly noteworthy are the tandem partnerships, whereby two pilot projects each cooperate intensively with regard to a relevant topic.

The pilot partners explore sustainable and innovative approaches in three basic project dimensions: A) Technology, B) Organization and C) Regulation / Ethics. The objective is to create a common understanding that will inspire and enable the pilots to develop strategies and test concrete use cases in their regions.

The pilot projects are implemented in the broad spectrum of municipal data utilization, for example in the areas of mobility, climate neutrality or economic development.


The overall aim is to create a digital exchange and training platform. This so-called “Data for All roadmap” is an innovative tool for digital knowledge transfer that provides cities, municipalities and regional authorities with an intuitive, step-by-step guide for initiating, planning, implementing and monitoring data-driven regional development and public service delivery.
