What is Route-to-PA?

The ROUTE-TO-PA project – Raising Open and User-friendly Transparency-Enabling Technologies fOr Public Administrations – aims at improving the engagement of citizens by making them able to socially interact over open data, by forming or joining existing online communities that share common interest and discuss common issues.


Our main purpose here is to engage citizens through a “purposeful and personalized relationship” between citizens and Open Data, not seen only as one between government and individual citizens but between government and networks of citizens that collectively attribute meanings to this information. The information by ROUTE-TO-PA is shared, interpreted, personalized, made easier to understand and discussed to assess its meanings.


  • Develop a Social Platform for Open Data (SPOD) enabling social interactions among open data users and between open data users and government data;
  • Build Transparency-Enhancing Toolset (TET) as extensions for existing major Open Data Platforms;
  • Develop a set of recommendations (GUIDE) as good practice guide for open data publishers for achieving higher quality transparency through open data.
