How to make the best use of location information in the policy lifecycle?

Since “everything happens somewhere”, location data has become essential for many fields like environment, agriculture, regional and local planning, transport, energy, health, and tourism and culture. 

Public administrations increasingly recognise the value of location information to understand policy impacts, interact with citizens and businesses, and manage resources and emergencies. Consequently, location data, location interoperability, and location intelligence play a key role in the digital transformation of government, business, and society; they help develop evidence-based policy and monitor their progress. 

Location data should be available for all users to make the most of it; Aspects such as data quality, licensing conditions, and data privacy, among others, should take into account the user’s needs. It is also necessary to align existing policies and strategic frameworks to avoid inefficiencies, duplication of efforts, and unnecessary costs.

Location information facilitates the process of policymaking. It nurtures all stages of policies’ life cycle by providing evidence, patterns, and planning of future implementations, among many other contributions. 

The ELISE ISA² action “European Location Interoperability Solutions for e-Government” supports Digital Government Transformation by making the best use of location data and technologies in an interoperable manner. In this spirit, the ELISE ISA2 action has supported different policy initiatives, including Better Regulation, Digital Single Market Strategy goals and the European Interoperability Framework

This webinar will offer an opportunity to review and discuss how location information in general and the ELISE ISA2 action, in particular, can/have contributed to support policy.
