Introduction to the Project

DT4REGIONS aims to create a European Platform for Regions to enable AI and Big Data collective solutions. It will be a unique challenge-based innovation platform for the development of tools and services of public interest. At the same time, it will enhance public administration efficiency and effectiveness in user-centric services.

Bringing together 14 partners and 13 supporting organisations from across Europe, the project has the real needs of a network of regions at its heart. Technical partners provide assistance to make the platform a sound and effective environment for the development of the next era of AI and Big Data for the digital transformation of public administration. Within this context, public administrations will be engaged in defining the platform services and will benefit from dedicated capacity building and mutual learning activities, with a view to exploiting the full potential of the platform itself. Regional innovation ecosystem actors will contribute to the identification of the platform functionalities and contents, as well as of the future public services to be developed and delivered on the back of AI and Big Data solutions.


Project Objectives

Specific objectives of the project are:

- Raising awareness and knowledge about AI and big data applications for public services within the public administrations and the regional ecosystem

- Stimulating peer to peer knowledge sharing among regions

- Increasing and enlarging policy discussions on topics of specific public interest

- Serving as a hub of a wide variety of data-related topics, such as open data, smart cities, digital skills

- Fostering innovation through practical exercises, including two hackathons, based on the concrete needs of public administrations and citizens.
