Work Packages

INDIGO brings together legal experts on EU law and policy with leading experts in IT and artificial intelligence (AI) to work on a coherent legal framework for the specific needs of the digitalised implementation of EU public policies.

The project will tackle systemic, non-policy sector-specific issues from the ongoing information technology revolution with experts having intimate understanding of the conditions of implementation of EU policies in a highly integrated multi-level, multi-jurisdictional and multi-lingual system.

The INDIGO project will undertake the work so outlined with ten work packages (WP) under the single or joint responsibility of the project partners.

Lead: University of Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

These WP include the overall coordination of the consortium, the strategic, administrative and financial management as well as the implementation of the dissemination strategy.

Lead: Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Spain)

This WP aims at mapping the profound changes to decision-making processes in Europe incurred by automation and the use of artificial intelligence.

WP3, 4, 5 and 6 are designed to ensure an understanding of the realities, possibilities and challenges of automated decision-making systems in the implementation of the EU law and policy through in-depth case studies. The topics are chosen based on their relevance towards the reality of regulation in Europe’s single market, the nature of their policies and the advanced state of the automated decision-making systems.

WP3 – Case study: Digitalised governance of the single-market – goods and (non-financial) services (Lead: University of Freiburg, Germany)

WP4 – Case study: Regulatory technology in Digital Reporting to Financial Regulators (Lead: University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg)

WP5 – Case study: Automated decision-making in the EU border control context (Lead: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany)

WP6 – Case study: Influencing decision-making by targeting political advertising (Lead: Erik Castren Institute, University of Helsinki, Finland)

Lead: University of Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

This WP will discuss technological challenges induced by the integration of procedural requirements arising from legal requirements into technological solutions. 

Lead: University of Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

The results of WP2-6 as well as an understanding of technological-human interaction in decision-making will be used in WP8 to draw conclusions on how automated decision-making systems influence general procedural principles underpinning EU public law.

Leads: University of Luxembourg (Luxembourg) and University of Freiburg (Germany)

This WP aims at developing policy proposals on the basis of the policy cycle-adapted analysis of automated decision-making systems in the context of a composite, multi-level and multi-jurisdictional implementation of EU public law and policies.
