Conference on Policy-Making 2.0: technologies that are changing the way policy is made


The Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies is one of the core partners of the European Commission's FP7 funded Crossover, a support action whose main goal is to consolidate and expand the community in the domain of ICT for governance and policy modelling.

Policy-making 2.0 refers to a blend of emerging and fast developing technologies that enable better, timely and more participative decision-making in government.

The International Conference on Policy-Making 2.0 organised by the Crossover FP7 project in Dublin on 17 and 18 May 2013 will explore the emerging technologies and trends that are changing the way policy is made and will aim to cross-fertilize projects to support community building and to learn from each other.

Topics discussed during the conference include open and big data, visual analytics, modelling and simulation, collaborative governance and crowdsourcing, serious gaming, and opinion mining.

The FP7 Crossover Conference is organised before the European Digital Agenda Assembly that will take place in Dublin on 19-20 June 2013.

The event is free and open to anyone with an interest in 21st century policy making.
