Digitranscope is a 3-year research project (2018-20) of the JRC Centre for Advanced Studies focusing on the governance of digitally transformed human societies.

The project aims to provide a deeper understanding of key aspects of digital transformation to help policymakers address the challenges facing European  society over the next decades. 

The principal (initial) research themes are:

To explore the changing flows, ownership, quality and implications of digitised data and information. Data constitute the decisive ingredient of the transformed society, and data ownership, access, sharing, analysis and dissemination (for example in social, economic and political contexts) will interplay in uncertain ways as they have to date;

To identifying the key policy challenges relating to massive interconnection (IOT) and the associated opportunities and risks;

To determine what skills are needed to live fulfilling and healthy lives in a digitally transformed society, and to explore how to offer all citizens the opportunity to develop these skills;

To explore innovative forms of governance for Europe leveraging the characteristics of digital transformation.
