Context

The local open data catalogue and the data portal of the Hradec Králové region (‘Data KHK’) is influenced by the regional development strategy, which defines the main goals and priorities of the region for the period 2021–2027. One of the key areas of the strategy is the digital transformation of the region. The project also responds to the national and European policies and initiatives that support the use of open data and data-driven innovation. These include the Digital Agenda for Europe, the European Data Strategy and the Czech Republic’s Open Government Partnership Action Plan.

Objectives

The objective of Data KHK was to establish a data portal that serves as a central information hub for both professionals and the general public. The portal provides open data sets of the Hradec Králové Region in simple and interactive graphs, which can be downloaded for further processing. Each point on the map has a detailed description, enabling citizens to understand the specific information contained in the datasets. With this initiative, the region has opened up to the public, promoting innovation in public administration, particularly among regions. The action plans and strategic documents of both the Czech Republic and the EU have been fulfilled, ensuring high-quality, innovative, digital and responsive public administration for citizens. This digital data resource enables the development of the digital economy within the region and the organisation. Therefore, citizens can monitor how public funds are managed by the public administration. This promotes financial literacy and the supervision of public finances.

Implementation

The portal is based on the Local Catalogue of Open Data (LCOD) and collects unified data from various sources, including open data sets, statistical data and region-specific data. In addition, feedback from the public is used to further improve the portal. Led by the Data Portal Implementation Coordinator, a small team of seven employees from the Department of Analysis, Management Support and Control built the portal with minimal cost of €15 841 and a short timeframe.
