Project: INformation in the EU’s DIgitalised GOvernance

Acronym INDIGO (Reference Number: 462-19-090)
Project Topic INDIGO is a project on pressing issues affecting the future of democratic governance in Europe and the relation between the individual and the public sphere. INDIGO undertakes a structured analysis and develops an innovative approach to analysing and addressing the impact of digitalisation of the multijurisdictional implementation of policies in Europe through joint information systems and the use of advanced machine learning systems based on algorithms on possibilities of steering of decision-making by democratic legislation, individual participation, the protection of fundamental rights and the enforcement of the rule of law through independent judicial review. The objectives and outcome are, first, to map the profoundly transformative impact of innovative information technologies on rule-making and decision-making procedures and their impact on constitutional values enshrined in EU public law. Second, to develop future-proof regulatory approaches to realising these values in an age of technological innovation. INDIGO will thereby develop pathways to ensure that the use of information technology will both enhance the rule of law, democracy, transparency and the protection of fundamental individual rights as well as efficiency in problem solving and provision of public goods. INDIGO cuts across themes 3, 4 and 5 having as subjects inter alia democracy and information, expertise and the locus of engagement influencing public decision-making and questions of the nature of their authority and accountability. The consortium will closely work together in working groups with legal scholars, STS social scientists and Computer Science experts, led as PI by the originator and coordinator of the ReNEUAL project.
