Policy cloud services will turn illegible data into a readable format through innovative analytical tools. Using this now readable data our policy orientated modelling tools inform policy in the way public administration or business needs to.
Our tools come with built in privacy and security for sensitive data. This is part of six main services that have been designed to take vast amounts of raw data, clean it, sort it, and adapt it to a policy making scenario.
These Policy Cloud service will be delivered through the EGI federated cloud through EOSC. Policy Cloud will create a major change in how we use data. Public participation through crowdsourcing of data will become far more streamlined, easy and ethically positive. It will enlarge the evidence base for effective policy, making it more predictable. As well as facilitating interoperability through reusable tools.
These are not just plans and hopes but are ideas that are actually happening now. We have four pilot cases that are implementing all of the aspects of Policy Cloud. Based in Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and UK they range from fighting radicalisation online to creating a more sustainable agriculture environment. The list of interesting uses goes on and you can find out more information, including interviews, articles and graphics on our newly revamped website. So, join our community, the exciting journey has only just begun.
