The Open Strategies project came to life as a response to social trends leading to a greater degree of openness in all domains of life. The phenomena of transparency and inclusiveness in strategic planning is also higly relevant for the area of regional development, which is the main subject of the project. In today's digital and interconnected world, ICT technologies provide a radical incentive for greater openness and allow not only to communicate strategically relevant information more broadly, comprehensively and more timely, but also to work more effectively with structured and unstructured data. The data, information and knowledge hidden in economic and social development programs can help us in the preparation of new national and local strategies for the reconstruction of Slovakia in the post-covid period. In the presentation of the Open Strategies project, we will look together at how to obtain and interpret this data.
