The PolicyCloud project will be participating in the two online workshops on the Data Week 2022 taking place on 25 May and 1 June 2022.


Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI research and innovation communities. In Data Week, the participants share knowledge and results, discuss topics of common interest, find synergies, build new collaborations and identify new challenges and recommendations. Data Week also links the communities and their results to the European policies and market needs and brings European initiatives and activities closer to local communities.

Data Week 2022 will take place for 3 weeks. An online opening event will kick-start the activities on the 24th of May. The event weeks include local events organized by the BDVA i-Spaces and international online sessions/workshops by the community, running until June 3rd. Finally, Data Week culminates at the 2-day physical event on June 8th and 9th in Naples, Italy, where the major topics discussed throughout the event weeks will be tackled through keynotes, panels, round tables and presentations by experts.

Online Workshops on the Data Week 2022

The online activities for the Data Week are free of charge, requiring only registration. The on-site conference in Naples, Italy has an entry fee.
Data Week 2022 main theme is “Towards an innovative, trusted, and fair European data economy”.

  • Disruptive technologies empowering decision-making in the public sector

Disruptive technologies, like AI, predictive data analytics, Digital Twin, and Cloud offer promising support to public administrations and policy-makers in better understanding the new context and in making more effective policy-related decisions, predicting eventualities and risks, and taking advantage of future opportunities. Nevertheless, the use of disruptive technologies in such domains often faces difficulties in being accepted, for this reason, the active involvement of the citizens and stakeholders is a must to gain the necessary trust.

On 25 May, Samuele Baroni (PolicyCloud policies against radicalisation pilot lead from Maggioli) will present the Policy Cloud Pilot on Policies against radicalisation in the Disruptive technologies empowering decision-making in the public sector session at 15.30-17.30.

This session shares the results from the URBANITE, URBANAGE, DECIDO, and POLICYCLOUD projects and showcases real experiences from some cities and regions successfully adopting a data-driven approach.

  • Towards effective implementation of data-driven public policies: successful use cases session

Nowadays, cities are gathering a big amount of data that are available to everyone. Governments and different projects are using this data to improve the quality of life of citizens and to close public administration to cities.
The objective of this session is to show how companies are offering services to public administration to show how to improve the organization of cities, save money and offer better services to the citizens and improve their quality of life.

Ana Georgieva (Urban Environment Pilot Lead from Sofia Municipality) will present the Policy Cloud pilot on Urban Environment in the Towards effective implementation of data-driven public policies: successful use cases session on 1 June (11.30-14.00).
