Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), a department of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, is the leading partner in the Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) BE GOOD programme. The major goal of this EU programme is to facilitate projects that focus on (re)using open data-driven services and Public Sector Information in the fields of infrastructure and the environment.

Launched in 2016, the programme has led to a total of eleven challenges being identified by the various NWE Interreg participants. One of the goals is to have at least five challenges met by 2020. RWS’s role as work package (WP) leader (for WP long-term) is to encourage and enable the challenge owners to implement their plans. At the outset of the programme, RWS, working with its technical partner LIST, defined a set of criteria that the challenges had to meet: innovation, transnationality, business model, technical, and progress. Movares and Goudappel Coffeng were asked to develop the criteria, depending on the sector for which the challenge has been established.

Based on the final set of criteria, we made a tool to present the results of the assessment of each challenge.
