The Policy Cloud project will harness the potential of digitisation, big data and cloud technologies to improve the modelling, creation and implementation of public and business policy.
Funded under the European Commission’s H2020 programme and over a three-year period from January 2020 to December 2022, Policy Cloud will deliver a unique, integrated environment of curated datasets, and data management, manipulation, and analysis tools.
The project will address the full lifecycle of policy management using the data analysis capabilities of the European Cloud Initiative.
Our 14-partner consortium is led by ATOS Spain and represents a diverse range of large companies, cloud providers, SMEs, research centres, and policy makers. Together we offer the skills combination required for effective, data-driven policy co-creation and cross-sector optimisation.
During the course of the project, our expertise will be practically demonstrated in four thematically distinct Pilot use cases to be run in diverse European cities, positively impacting both economic growth and the lives of the citizens concerned.
The solutions and tools developed by Policy Cloud will eventually become available from the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), as public cloud services. As explained by EC President von der Leyen at the 50th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, the EOSC is a core element of the European Commission's vision to make Europe a global leader in data management.
The Policy Cloud project was launched on 21 January 2020 at a kick-off meeting which took place in Madrid.
