By 2023 Policy Cloud will roll out a series of novel data-driven policy management solutions that can drastically advance policy making, and cloud and big data technologies and have a positive impact on a wide variety of stakeholders. Through our 4 pilots, we'll demonstrate the benefit of these innovations on public administrations, businesses and citizens across Europe.

Policy makers will be able to access, integrate and use in policy making different types of data sources. This will have a significant impact on the production of high quality and effective policies that improve the efficiency of the administration and the quality of citizens’ life. Big Data solution providers will see their competitiveness improved as Policy Cloud will offer an ecosystem of cloud-based policy management tools, for them to develop and integrate novel data-driven policy management solutions. Policy Cloud will also improve the competitiveness of companies developing Open Data products and services.

How can you benefit from Policy Cloud?

Policy Makers at European, national and regional level, Public Administrations but also Non Governmanteal Organisations and Standardisation Bodies will benefit from Policy Cloud as they will be provided wit the ability to make efficient and effective policy decisions through access to:

  • Curated, policy-related datasets
  • Data manipulation tools  enabling interpretation, predictive analysis and modelling,
  • Simulation tools with which to evaluate policy compliance and impact

Academic Institutions and Research Centers, European Research projects, the European Open Science Cloud as well as the individual (Early Career) Researchers and Big Data Experts will be provided by Policy Cloud with:

  • Access to policy-related data sets and  services through EOSC
  • Ability to build upon existing results in Big Data and R&I projects and others

In industry, Large Entreprises providing cloud and big data solutions as well as the Small and Medium Enterprises will benefit from Policy Cloud:  

  • Access to Policy Cloud data marketplace for data sharing
  • Via, pilots, improved quality of certain governmental datasets 

Citizens will be impacted by pilots and future Policy Cloud adoptions:

  • Opportunities to participate in policy creation through the iterative design and implementation methodology adopted  
  • Continuous improvement in policies through an iterative design approach which leverages newly available data on an ongoing basis and optimises policies simultaneously across multiple sectors
  • Increasingly relevant and useful policies designed around homogeneous segments rather than entire populations
