EGI will contribute to identify the services, tools and data made available by EOSC in order to better address the specific needs of public authorities, provision the the cloud-based infrastructure for supporting policy making. EGI will also contribute to the exploitation and dissemination of project results, and the establishment of a EOSC competence centre for the support of data-driven evidence-based policy making.
Policymaking is a process that takes place in stages, starting from the initiation of a policy to its implementation and subsequent evaluation. In this context, the EU-funded DECIDO project enables public administrations (PAs) to take full advantage of shared data, analytical tools and methodologies, computational power, cloud services and co-created data for the development of better targeted and more effective evidence-based policies. The aim is to help PAs leverage the capabilities and services offered by the European cloud infrastructure. By developing solid and realistic business plans to ensure the long-term sustainability of the results, the project will contribute to boosting the perceived legitimacy of authorities.
