When it comes to boost innovation and the development of creative applications in the area of Urban and Smarter Mobility, an Open Data approach is making quite a lot of sense. By Open Data, we mean that a city, a public service or even a major corporation would make some sets of its data available and promote them to an ecosystem of developers, researchers, potential partners: these unexpected resources from its ecosystem would then propose news ideas on how to use these data & Open APIs or 'mash them up' with other sets of data from other domains (than transportation).
Thus making it a true Open Innovation approach. And the area of Mobility and Transportation (versus Energy, Telecommunications, real estate, Health, Education, etc...) is actually one with the most potential and that gets the most interest from developers and citizens.
