This first in a series of 5 workshops on B2G data sharing in cities was held on 5 May, setting the scene for an open, peer-to-peer discussion among EU cities on their experiences of business-to-government (B2G) data sharing and how to scale up these practices in cities and regions across Europe.
Measuring digitalisation in regions and cities: the LORDI framework and survey
As announced in our “save the date” message, the next Signatories’ meeting on 19 January will focus on “Monitoring and Measuring” using the LORDI framework to measure digitalisation at regional and city level.
The LORDI project led by the Committee of the Regions and ESPON is currently gathering input through a survey to prepare January meeting with you. The purpose is to validate the LORDI framework and the proposed indicators with cities across Europe.
Your views are very precious to us and answering the survey will take you only 15 minutes!

The Corona crisis has made our dependence on basic digital skills painfully clear. When physical contact is impossible, we all need to be able to connect remotely. Municipalities should make sure their citizens do not fall victim to digital exclusion and set up digital help centres.
