During EURegionsWeek, TOP-IX will be in Brussels to propose the side event “Trusted policy-making in the digital era. Smarter citizens engagement and decision process“.
A data-driven approach gives the opportunity to design effective strategies and base policy decisions on sound evidence. It is important to explore #impacts and #opportunities at the intersection of #technologies and data-driven approaches with policy and decision-making processes.
The seminar focuses on this point, presenting and discussing the #benefits for decision-makers in using smart data platforms and interconnected #services, such as spatial planning or #social network modeling. It is also an opportunity to discover #innovative EU-funded projects’ solutions and other best #practices.
The event will take place in the spaces of the Piedmont Region Delegation to the EU in Brussels, on Tuesday 8 October, from 10.30am to 1pm. Seminar agenda:
