The Clarity project seeked to support European Member States in their pursuit for greater trust, transparency and efficiency within government via the increased take-up of open government initiatives.

Clarity mobilized a multidisciplinary network of stakeholders to conduct an interactive needs assessment and gap analysis in order to understand gaps in the market and support the growth on innovative solutions for open government in Europe. The results were developed into a blueprint for next steps in facilitating open government initiatives in Europe.
