As the COVID-19 crisis has made clear, data analytics is essential not just for public services to innovate but also to manage crises and save lives. We need the services and infrastructures that ensure high quality data in trusted base registries, such as the census records and available beds in intensive care unit. And we need the skills and the institutions to make the best use of these data, for instance through advanced modelling and the capacity to use those models appropriately in policy-making.
This collection aims to foster discussion and collaboration among experts, building on the study "Data Analytics for Member States and Citizens." The study explores the governance, technological and policy application aspect of big data in public administration, through a set of case studies and policy recommendations in support of the European Commission data strategy. The study is carried out by Deloitte and the Lisbon Council on behalf of the European Commission.
This space was created as a follow up to the online workshop held on 26 June 2020, and it aims to facilitate discussion between experts and stakeholders on the findings of the studies and in general on the topic of public data analytics. New posts can be submitted by the researchers on specific findings of the study.
The reports are available for download.
The study was commissioned by DG DIGIT, the European Commission Directorate General for informatics, in the context of ISA2 action 2016.03 – Big Data for Public Administrations.
