Horizon Results Booster is a new package of specialized services to maximize the impact of R&I public investment and further amplify the added value of the Framework Programmes (FPs). Services are delivered to FP7, H2020, HE projects at no cost and fully supported by the European Commission. URBANAGE together with DUET, PoliVisu, and ETAPAS will join this service as a group of projects and will benefit from tailored services on increasing and creating the portfolio of R&I project results.
PoliVisu enhances public involvement and support in urban policy-making, by equipping decision-makers with the skills and tools - from open (geo) data processing to advanced visualizations - to use big data for collaborative policy experimentation. As a result, the city makes better sustainable policy decisions and manages operations more effectively.
ETAPAS aims to improve public service delivery for citizens by facilitating the ethical adoption of Disruptive Technologies in compliance with European and national strategies and guidelines. What’s the ethical, social, and legal impact of the use of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, or Big data in the Public Sector, and how to deal with it? How can we correctly evaluate and govern the ethical implications of DTs adoption by Public Administrations and Public Service providers, taking into account the impact that these technologies can have on citizens’ lives? How can we securely manage DTs and the data they process? This is the problem that the Consortium Partners want to address in the ETAPAS project.
DUET, a brand new H2020 research and Innovation project leverages the advanced capabilities of cloud and high-performance computing (HPC), in the form of Digital Twins, to help public sector decision-making become more democratic and effective. By creating digital replica's of a city, people, no matter their background, can use the Digital Twins 3D and 2D interfaces for easy policy impact exploration and experimentation across entire cities and regions.
