Welcome to Like!'s website!

How can we use digital improvements to innovate our public service delivery? How can we incorporate collected data for innovative solutions for regions/municipalities? And how will this all contribute to the citizen’s perspective on public service delivery?

These questions are central in Project Like! Building a local digital innovation culture

The Like! Project will:

  • Work together with 10 partners in 5 countries in the North Sea Region
  • Combine knowledge of local governments, citizens, universities and SME's
  • Co-create smarter services through 9 transnational pilots
  • Contribute to the North Sea Region Programme 2014-2020

The Like! Project partners are:

  • The Netherlands: Groningen Municipality (lead beneficiary), Groningen University, Drenthe Province, Rotterdam Municipality
  • Denmark: Aalborg Municipality
  • United Kingdom: Angus Council, Suffolk County Council
  • Belgium: Roeselare Municipality
  • Germany: Vechta Stadt, Vechta University
