European Statistics Awards Programme


Eurostat is launching the European Statistics Awards Programme, with competitions in the fields of nowcasting and web intelligence. The main goal of the competition is to discover promising methodologies and data sources that could be used to improve the production of European statistics.


Within the awards programme, which will run until the end of 2025, Eurostat is planning three yearly rounds of competitions on nowcasting. The European Statistics Awards for Web Intelligence will be launched later this autumn. The European Statistics Awards on Nowcasting Why awards for nowcasting? Better timeliness is a recurring demand by policymakers and other users of European statistics. Improving timeliness requires continuous efforts involving a broad range of stakeholders and is a key driver for innovation in European statistics. New approaches based on advanced modelling (possibly using alternative, almost real-time, information) have an important potential to give us accurate estimates of key indicators much faster than before. By ‘nowcasting’, Eurostat understands the forecasting of statistical indicators within very tight timelines – typically before the reference period is over.Nowcasting methods are seen as possible cost-efficient, robust and generic approaches providing solutions to cover unmet needs. 

Topics:

In the first competition round, the teams will have the opportunity to submit nowcasts for one or more of the following three European statistics time series:

  • Topic 1: Tourism number of nights spent at tourist accommodation establishments
  • Topic 2: Production volume in industry
  • Topic 3: Producer prices in industry
