Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe Conference 2021

The convergence of Cloud, Big Data and AI has already resulted in major transformation across Government services, yet the process of policy making itself is often left behind. Join Policy Cloud, Decido, AI4PublicPolicy, BDVA, DUET and Intelcomp at the virtual Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe event 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.

Day 1: Evidence Based Policy Cases - from data to decision making

10.00-10.30

Plenary:

Given the complexity of our societies and the rapid generation of data, how can public authorities transform the usually slow, deliberative policy making process to one that is more agile and responsive, which develops better evidence-based policies which adapt as new data comes to light, and which are trusted, understood and contributed to by relevant stakeholders.

Wrap -Up

 

Taking place virtually on the 9th and 10th of December, 2021, here's what to expect:

  • Use Cases: We’ve asked our speakers to bring real-life examples of how they are transforming the traditionally slow deliberative policy making process in the fields of health, climate change and mobility, to one that is more agile and responsive. Hear directly from cities themselves on how they are developing better evidence-based policies which adapt as new data comes to light, and which are trusted and contributed to by relevant stakeholders who feel engaged in the process.

  • Tools: See how city managers and policy makers are co-creating data-driven decision-making ecosystems with cutting edge tools which enable them to visualise, analyse and even predict the complex impact of decisions across multiple domains, time and space. Be hands-on with AI, big data and digital twin demos and be inspired by what you could potentially achieve for your administration.

  • Strategies: Learn how to manage legal, ethical and standards challenges and constraints in our increasingly digital world.  From best practices to principles and legislation our speakers will help you understand and navigate the complex environment in pragmatic ways that will get you started on your journey.

Attendance is open to all.  Join us as we forge the future of modern policy making.
