Taking place in the week of 22 to 26 November 2021, following the EU Open Data Days.
Join the second biennial EU Conference on modelling for policy support! Organised by the Joint Research Centre, this 5-day event is free of charge, open to everyone, and fully online.
To tackle policy challenges, political choices have to be made and transparently informed by evidence. Models can greatly help to make informed decisions that take environmental, economic, and social impacts into account. The European Commission makes extensive use of models and this conference will help researchers and policymakers identify common challenges and develop solutions across all policy domains.
Open data can greatly contribute to the decision-making process, and the Publications Office of the EU will organise the closing session for the conference on Friday 26 November 2021. As follow-up of the EU Open Data Days (23 – 25 November), this session will highlight the main outcomes of the EU Open Data Days with a specific focus on how open data and data visualisation can be used to support policymaking. We will be joined by the first winning team of the EU Datathon 2020, in the category of ‘European Green Deal’, geofluxus, and other EU DataViz 2021 speakers.
