Abstract

Citizens’ use of Open Data is often limited to the use of apps. The design of the (app based) public service as well as the interpretation of the data is done for them. The organization of local hackathons can promote citizens’ data literacy and better use of available
Open Data for service transformation purposes. This promises to nicely combine citizen intelligence with participatory innovation with and by public service beneficiaries as the “next wave” of inclusive (e-)Government practice. In the proposed workshop, we simulate the
organization and dynamics of a Hackathon based on the evidence at hand.
