Policy Cloud
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.  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 is addressing challenges faced by many public administrations in improving how they make policy decisions by accessing and using data. The Policy Cloud Innovation workshop invites participants of the MCE2021 conference to join its innovation workshop, intended as a playground for discussions on how to make data-driven policies a reality in your city.
