The development in the field of ICT has opened doors for huge data collections. In order to take advantage of the huge data collections, research and development evolves in different directions, which are not necessarily divergent. We have set ourselves the question how developing and developed countries may share best practices to benefit from the explosive growth of data due to ICT- developments. We argue that existing apps
can be tailored and fed by data to solve problems, such as safety issues, in specific countries. Furthermore, we stress the importance of sharing datasets amongst different countries. Data sharing contributes to a better understanding of emerging phenomena on our planet.
