? Press-Release – November 2022


The Policy Cloud project has released the White Paper “Cloud for Data Driven Policy Management. Research and Innovation Action Towards Interoperable Data Driven Policymaking” in collaboration with StandICT.EU 2023, an EU H2020 CSA supporting ICT European researchers and professionals in carrying out their activity.

About Policy Cloud

Over the past three years (2020-2022), the EU-funded Policy Cloud project has developed an extensive framework of solutions that support evidence-based elaboration and policy analysis. Its prototype consists of a serverless cloud-based system that allows flexible exploitation and management of policy-relevant dataflows. The analytic ecosystem created by Policy Cloud includes a suite of services, which turn raw data into valuable and actionable knowledge:

• Policy Development Toolkit

• Data Marketplace

• Policies Management Framework

• Cloud Capabilities & Data Collection

• Reusable Models & Analytical Tools

• Ethics Framework

White Paper “Cloud for Data Driven Policy Management. Research and Innovation Action Towards Interoperable Data Driven Policymaking”

The White Paper, developed in collaboration with StandICT.eu 2023, addresses the standardisation of data interoperability in data-driven policymaking, with a particular focus on the technological, legal and ethical aspects of handling data. As data sources become more available and diverse, it is key to increase the efforts in establishing proper standards that will ensure ethical and legal compliance. The case of the Policy Cloud project has highlighted this need through its 3-dimensional approach or “end-to-end legal and ethical assessment” for an end-to-end data analysis. The three stages of the approach include a preliminary assessment of the implications around the use of available data, the set-up of a technology workplace where data can be uploaded, and the ingestion of data in the cloud environment which enables its subsequent release and further analysis.

The novel technology workplace is also referred to as Interim Repository and it proved to be efficient in the context of the project. Nevertheless, it is crucial to develop further solutions to maintain the balance between legal and ethical compliance on one side, and the registrability of data analytics tools. Hence, the White Paper aims at analysing novel approaches to data-driven policymaking and data interoperability with an emphasis on setting the ground for standardisation and compliance.
