The DANS Model was tested as a working model in the project Digital Baltic – Digital Innovation in Open Data and Public Sector Information for the Baltic Sea Region in 2014. To overcome the challenge towards a digital single market, there is a need to stimulate digital innovation within the re-use Open data and PSI. The Digital Baltic project believes that by applying the Quadruple Helix Innovation Model, by using for example a creative method of Open Space, can inspire citizens to come up with new innovations and ideas that will increase the re-use of PSI and Open data in the BSR region.
Citizen and user involvement creates more usable, useful products and services both for the private and the public sector, which generate extra added values as faster-time- to-market, higher acceptance and usage among stakeholders, stronger brands and increased sales.
