DigiTranScope is a research project of the JRC (Joint Research Centre), Centre for Advanced Studies at the European Commission, focusing on the governance of digitally transformed human societies. The project aims to provide a deeper understanding of key aspects of digital transformation to help policy-makers address the challenges facing European society over the next decades. Core Topics of the Autumn Institute: Data Governance: This is a key battleground to find a European way to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Transformation. We need to find new ways of sharing data between the public sector, commercial sector, and civil society so that the value created out of data analytics and new algorithms is redistributed more equitably across all stakeholders to the benefit of European society. New Forms of Policy Design, Policy Learning: This is a topic exploring how we can develop new forms of more participative policy design, monitoring, feedback/assessment, learning loops that exploit the characteristics of digital transformation including, smart cities, gaming, digital twins, and personalisation. Digital Empowerment and Social Inequalities: How can we develop/design/foster a new path exploiting the benefits of digital transformation so that it is aimed at reducing existing social, economic, and spatial inequalities rather than exacerbating them? What is the role of local data ecosystems and co-operatives, and in general more geographically diversified policy measures, in tapping into the intrinsic characteristics of European regions and cities?
