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

  • Work together with 10 partners in 5 countries in the North Sea Region
