The PARTERRE project demonstrated and validated the business potential of novel e-participatory methods and tools for spatial and strategic planning at the European level, by leveraging on two fully blown ICT solutions: the Electronic Town Meeting – a deliberative democracy methodology and toolset combining the direct integration of small-groups discussion with the advantages of electronic communication, and the DEMOS-Plan – a solution for the management of participatory spatial planning.

Deployment has led to a number of interesting implications for the European public authorities, such as:

  • building up of a cost effective ICT platform that enables regular or occasional consultation of remotely and sparsely located citizens and stakeholders;
  • gradually migrating the whole administrative system related to spatial data infrastructure towards a full digitalisation of the “legally compulsory” exchanges between planning agencies, local stakeholders and the general public; and
  • setting the stage for these two facilities to become practically interoperable to each other and across different EU Member States.
