This is what we work with

Democracy and participation

Democracy only works if people trust each other and trust social institutions and decision-makers. The goal of the Democracy and participation theme is to seek solutions for strengthening social participation and trust and to find ways to take advantage of new technologies.

Fair data economy

We are building a human-driven, fair data economy based on the European value base. The use of data creates well-being and competitiveness and helps to develop societies. Fairness means that the interests of individuals, businesses and society are balanced.
