Applied Data-Science and AI for proactive SME service
With the digital transformation of public services taking place at an unprecedented pace during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is more data than ever before. Also, during the health crisis and the resulting economic impact, it became clear that early digital intervention by the Public Administration is crucial to prevent business failure.
Therefore, it is now a priority to activate digital proactive service for the survival of businesses and to facilitate economic activity as a whole. In order for this to be possible, it is necessary for Public Administration to acquire the ability to manage and understand the continuous flow of data.
However, the course to be followed is not proving to be easy for the local authorities. When transitioning to data management and analysis, administrations face obstacles related to the respective political/regulatory framework as well as technological and organizational readiness.
PROACTsme aims to improve policy instruments that work towards improving e-Government capabilities, enabling proactiveness, and thus making public services ‘smarter’.
The Project focuses on digital transformation to achieve a more personalized and proactive service, leveraging the potential of big data, automated administrative action, and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
During its implementation, the Project will promote the exchange of experiences, knowledge, and good practices among 5 EU regions with different stages of development. Special emphasis will be placed on data use and management, interoperability principles and the latest developments in data analysis such as forecasting business needs and promoting services ” Just In Tine”, creating public-private data sharing and business intelligence ecosystems.
