Awards Detail


Your solution for digital transformation


About the Award

The DT4REGIONS Award gives visibility to the best solutions such as initiatives and technological applications based on Artificial Intelligence and Big Data currently in use by public administrations in Europe. Governments in Europe are doing efforts to integrate AI and Big Data solutions into their operation and to improve services to citizens. From an analysis performed by AI Watch it emerged that the AI is particularly used to support redesigning governance processes and policy-making mechanisms, as well as to improve public service delivery and engagement with citizens.


We are looking for your digital transformation solution!

The DT4REGIONS Award aims to encourage a bottom-up sharing of best practices, solutions, applications and initiatives adopted by national and regional governments or by public authorities at all levels so to increase mutual learning. Awarding the most successful cases of AI and BIg Data implementation will serve to help scaling these solutions to further Member States.
