Dear Suchith,


Best thanks for these documents from the European Joint Research Center you
sent  to inform the CODATA community.

These documents also indicate in a convincing way that the corresponding
intricacies of operational implementations are far from easy and that Data
Science is not the only source for operational innovation – it needs
government, administration, private sector and society to work closely
together in the permanent process of governance (from planning / design
through implementation and effectiveness control).


Those of our colleagues that work in environmental and geo-information will
notice - without much surprise - that some authors of these studies –
Massimo Craglia (contact person) and Henk Scholten – had been massively
involved in governance and implementation of the EU INSPIRE Directive
(establishing an infrastructure for spatial information in Europe to support
Community environmental policies, and policies or activities which may have
an impact on the environment)

Practice innovation in other domains (like in the RISK-Domains) still lag
far behind data science experiences and informatics state-of-the-art (but we
work on it  http://RIMMA.org ).

Especially in public administration we see a general and growing lack of
adequately skilled digital professionals!

The European Union (Commission) works hard to get administration,
politicians, private sector, R&D and other stakeholders into roundtables and
open discourse because the final success is in serving Society.


Just let me mention an important additional, official EU document that was
distributed only 2 days ago:


2030 Digital Compass: the European way for the Digital Decade

Communication from The Commission to the European Parliament, The Council,
The European Economic and Social Committee and The Committee of the Regions

Brussels, 9.3.2021     COM(2021) 118 final,  27 p.
