The Open Data Economy: promoting digital innovation in Dublin

Commissioned

The case study on Dublin (Ireland) is one of the concrete results of the URBACT workstream ‘New urban economies’, after collection of data, a study visit, and interviews with local stakeholders.

It explores the practice the city put in place to boost its local economy, actions
implemented, achievements and challenges, success factors, and conditions for
transfer to other cities. The first part of the case study summarises the key points
of the practice, while the second part (analytical template) provides more details
for those interested in transferring the practice to their local context.
