A tool to guide policy makers to derive specific policies and regulatory mechanisms in an agile and iterative manner – integrating both design thinking and evidence - based policy making. This notion of a canvas is borrowed from the business world. The canvas approach helps translate broad insights and understandings to the needs of a particular country. It also helps define the key issues at stake as well as metrics to evaluate success and suggest avenues for possible iteration and improvement.
About this tool
The Big Policy Canvas Knowledge Base is a state-of-the-art, online and dynamic repository that functions as an accumulator uniting all the knowledge produced during the project. It is structured along the three dimensions of needs, trends and assets and furthermore offers a mapping among them by defining how they are interconnected and how they influence each other.

The Data & Analytics Framework (DAF) is an open source project developed in the context of the activities planned by the Italian Three-Year Plan for ICT in Public Administration 2017 - 2019, approved by the Italian Government in 2017.
The DAF project attempts to establish a central Chief Data Officer (CDO) for the Government and Public Administration. Its main goal is to promote data exchange among Italian Public Administrations (PAs), to support the diffusion of open data, and to enable data-driven policies. The framework is composed by three building blocks:
The EU Joint Research Centre (JRC) collects the tools and databases to each published entry on the EU Science Hub respectively. The collection contains a total of 177 tools and databases for all policy domains. The tools and databases are categorised by name and acronym and can be filtered by research area or keyword.
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is part of the European Cloud Initiative aiming a competitive data and knowledge economy in Europe. It functions as a virtual environment with open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data, across borders and scientific disciplines by federating existing scientific data infrastructures.
OpenAIRE is a legal entity supporting the distributed infrastructure for open science in Europe and a European open science policy collaboration network.
OpenAIRE undertakes the following functions: (a) offers services such as a search engine for scholarly works and further support services such as the linking of research results by using text mining techniques, (b) offers guidelines and information on open science policies, (c) is a training provider on how to implement open science, (d) connects researchers to a research community.
Galileo is the European Union's Global Satellite Navigation System (GNSS). Sometimes called the ’European GPS‘, Galileo provides accurate positioning and timing information. Galileo is a programme under civilian control and its data can be used for a broad range of applications. It is autonomous but also interoperable with existing satellite navigation systems. At the moment, the Galileo constellation consists of 24 satellites.
The Big Data Test Infrastructure (BDTI) is a building block of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). It provides a set of services to help public administrations explore and experiment with various data sources, software tools and methodologies.
EUMETSAT is the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment with the purpose of supplying reliable and accurate weather and climate-related satellite data, images and products – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – to the National Meteorological Services of the EU Member States and other users worldwide.
EUMETSAT provides data, products and support services to the Copernicus information services and user communities, with a focus on marine, atmosphere and climate.
Regulatory sandboxes are experimental rooms to test policies or business models in an environment with minimal legal requirements. Certain governments have already started to adopt the concept, which originally evolved in the fintech startup context. It helps governments better understand new technology and its regulatory implications
A Cloud-based video platform to analyse traffic movements. The German part of the project by Fraunhofer HHS aims to develop low-complexity, real-time algorithms for analysis of large-scale visual data. In consideration of increasingly growing cities in European industrial countries it becomes more and more important that the traffic situation has to be optimised. The service tries to solve this issue by analysing data streams to discover free park spaces for
