JobTechDev is an initiative from the Swedish Public Employment Service where the goal is to create a common infrastructure of open source software, data, and standards for private actors and citizens to build on. Envisioned outcomes include a higher variety of services and better matching for employers and job-seekers, as well as a lower barrier to entry for new job-matching service provides.

We will present an overview of the infrastructure and share a public-sector organization's rationale for sharing software as open source. Attendees will further get insights into the potential value and ways of extending collaboration and co-creation beyond open source software to also include related open data and standards.

Attendees are invited to discuss how to incentivize both organizations and citizens to join such cross-sector collaboration, and how a public-sector organization should best facilitate and enable the collaboration and development of this kind of infrastructure.
