The pillars of open government


Citizens have to be able to access all the necessary information to understand how public institutions function and work. Data should be released in an open format to ensure reuse and reproduction.


Citizens have to be involved in decision-making and policy-making at central and local level to be able to contribute to the common good and to public sector efficiency with ideas, knowledge and know-how.

Digital citizenship and innovation

New technologies increase efficiency in public administration and facilitate transparency and civic participation. The OPG promotes the development of public platforms for delivering services, enhancing digital citizenship and sharing information and ideas.
