Brief description

The Policy Cloud project aims to harness the potential of digitisation, big data and cloud technologies to improve the modelling, creation and implementation of policy. In three years (2020-2023) the project will address challenges faced by many businesses and public administrations of improving how they make policy decisions by accessing and using data.

Funded under the European Commission’s H2020 programme, the project will deliver a unique, integrated environment of curated datasets and data management, manipulation, and analysis tools addressing the full lifecycle of policy management in four distinct thematic areas, and using the data analysis capabilities of the European Cloud Initiative.
The 14-partner consortium is led by ATOS Spain and represents a diverse range of large companies, cloud providers, SMEs, research centres, and policy makers which together provide the skills combination required for effective, data-driven policy co-creation and cross-sector optimisation.

Thanks to our hard work, innovation and expertise, we aim to make a real impact in 4 different pilot cases across Europe which can boost economic growth and enhance the lives of citizens.

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.
