Julia and Aneta headed over to Google last Thursday (April 23) to discuss innovation trends at an event co-hosted by Samsung. During her talk, Julia noted that Open Data is currently driving a ‘reverse knowledge transfer' wherein the private sector is starting to take its cue from the public sector in terms of open innovation. 'Whereas 10 years ago, introducing innovation in the public sector was as simple as copying private sector trends,’ Julia argued, 'today 21c sees private sector clients increasingly coming to us to learn about how governments are using Open Data and Open Innovation to drive greater collaboration and co-creation with citizens and businesses alike'. 21c's co-design methodology helps companies unleash the power of Open Data.
