Project cluster formed to organise European evidence based policymaking event

Policy Cloud

Policy Cloud, Decido, AI4PublicPolicy, DUET and Intelcomp have formed a project cluster called the Data Driven Policy Cluster, releasing a roadmap and organising the virtual Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe event on 9-10 December to explore major challenges, trends and opportunities to improve public sector decision making that will deliver healthier, happier places to live and work.

Digital technologies have changed the world. Today people expect faster, seamless, on-demand services from their providers, and Government is no exception. For effective urban operations which make life easier for residents, workers and visitors, Public Sector decision making needs to become more agile, breaking down data silos to combine day-to-day tactical decisions with longer term policies and strategies. Disruptive technologies such as Digital Twins, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Performance Computing (HPC) unlock new opportunities for sustainable decision making through visualisations, simulations and predictions that enhance transparency, increase public support and involvement, and optimise resources.

To support this transformation, Policy Cloud, Decido, AI4PublicPolicy, DUET and Intelcomp pan-European projects and initiatives dedicated to using cloud for data-driven policy, have joined forces to host Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe, a premier conference for government that focuses purely on data and tools for decision making. Together with leading change agents from the European Commission and Local Government the event will explore the new decision-making ecosystems being built by cities and administrations, including the use cases being adopted, and the innovative data and tools being adopted for modern policy making. The event already has 200 registrants, and participants can still register throughout the two day event.
