In this the Governance Ethics Track of the Evidence Based Policymaking in Europe Summit 2021, core ethical issues identified in the context of projects to develop policymakers’ ability to make key policy decisions based on objective criteria derived from real-world data were discussed - such as ensuring the relevance of collected and processed data, the management of potential biases within datasets or processing algorithms, and the transparency, explainability and security of the data analysis and visualisation process - as well as strategies implemented in each of the relevant projects to ensure these (and other) issues are efficiently addressed, so as to simultaneously protect the trustworthiness and effectiveness of the solutions pursued by each Project. In this Brief, we go over the most significant ideas and conclusions reached during this Track, and also provide a summary of the policy recommendations based on the experience gathered within the different Projects.
