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, 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 CloudDecidoAI4PublicPolicyDUET 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.

SSHOC joins the discussion on Innovative Tools for Evidence Based Policy - from digital disruption to digital adoption

The convergance of Cloud, Big Data and AI has already caused considerable transformation across Government. With citizens demanding better experiences as their expectations shift towards quick, seamless and personalised services, now is the time for Public Sector decision makers to embrace digital disruption and new innovative technologies to make more more sustainable policy based on real-time information, predicted impact and citizen input. Suzanne Dumouchel (HumaNum, SSHOC, EOSC association) will join this plenary diuscussion on 10 Dceember at 10.00 CET. and will share viewpoints from SSHOC and EOSC associtaion and the SSH.
