We’re here to find and share the technology that can help you deliver better public services.

The stories behind the technology...

Barcelona’s citizens will soon have a simpler and more efficient way of reporting street issues, thanks to a Code for Europe open source project.

Councils and members of the public are helping develop a smartphone app that could change the way planning applications are publicised.

A Code for Europe project is developing an open source web app to help people share memories of their home town.

One of the winners of last year's EdinburghApps contest aims to help the council deliver vital equipment more efficiently.

Each year, Edinburgh's city council invites Scotland's top tech talent to compete and develop new apps to help the capital's residents.

How do you let people know where their nearest life-saving equipment is? An Irish project's using volunteer coders and an army of teenagers.
