For bicyclists, democratizing data is a matter of life and death

The Swedish government recently presented a national strategy for increasing access to data to enable digital innovation. As digital innovators and engineers, we at Futurice applaud the intention, and we want to shine a light on the challenges we’ve faced when trying to access data that could help keep cyclists safe on our roads. We hope that this perspective can contribute to a well-functioning implementation of the data strategy—and potentially mean the difference between life and death.
