Realising the European Cloud for Data-Driven Policy Management
H2020 project PolicyCloud to help make data-driven policy management a reality across Europe

Making data-driven policy management a reality across Europe

The Policy Cloud project aims to harness the potential of digitisation, big data and cloud technologies to improve the modelling, creation and implementation of policy. In three years (2020-2023) the project will address challenges faced by many businesses and public administrations of improving how they make policy decisions by accessing and using data.

Funded under the European Commission’s H2020 programme, the project will deliver a unique, integrated environment of curated datasets and data management, manipulation, and analysis tools addressing the full lifecycle of policy management in four distinct thematic areas, and using the data analysis capabilities of the European Cloud Initiative.

Pilots

Policy Cloud runs four pilots covering complex themes in very different fields. The pilots will serve as demonstrators for data-driven policy management and leverage methodologies for user participation from citizens and communities. Set in Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, pilots will show the applicability and re-usability of the developed models and tools in different countries, contexts and sectors. Read more.
