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 multi- jurisdictional 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.

The international consortium, made up of five universities and research centres from Luxembourg, Germany, Finland and Spain, will work closely together in working groups made up of legal scholars, STS social scientists (Science and Technology Studies) and Computer Science experts, under the coordination of one of the founders and coordinators of the ReNEUAL project.

The Spanish team, from Pompeu Fabra University, is responsible for Work Package 2 of the project and will have a particularly prominent participation in Work Packages 8, 9 and 10.
