Are you thinking of submitting your project under the theme of ‘Digital PA’?
The Digital Public Administration award category welcomes projects which are based on digital solutions in all areas of public administration which enable more effective policy-making, strategic and operational planning, transformation of service delivery (both quality and quantity), enhance access to services, facilitate innovation by third parties such as the private and not-for profit sector/community groups, reshape infrastructure design, delivery and management, facilitate effective financial and operational management, embed/enhance cyber security against current, emerging and potential future threats, enhance data privacy, facilitate changing working patterns arising from the COVID 19 pandemic, enable better access to information by citizens and communication/engagement with stakeholders, facilitate integration of data from different sources, enhance effectiveness of data analysis and interpretation (including predictive capacity), generate automatic or easy to access service entitlements for citizens and underpin the quality of information necessary to sustain democracy.
Digital solutions could be based on new technologies using, for example, artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, data and text mining and remote surveillance of infrastructure.
What kind of projects can be submitted under this theme?
The definition of themes in EPSA 2021 is, as has always been the case in past editions, intended to be inclusive i.e. to maximise the number of projects which fit within the scope of the themes.
The following are projects from recent past EPSA editions which would fit into the scope of the theme ‘Digital PA’
