In H2020, ICT projects topics will be spread among a variety of the so called “societal challenges” and the industrial leadership pillar. Encompassing both visions, we would like to present the need for the adoption of new principles in the evaluation of the success of a project from a more global perspective. The objective of the session would be to promote the adoption of a methodology that allows assessing user-value and global impact of solutions proposed by ICT projects, not only in terms of successful business case studies and technical achievements but also regarding, among others, public common interests, solidarity, sustainability, social responsibility or democratic practices. Some of these aspects are already being considered in cooperation-oriented projects, and we believe these experiences could be replicated all along in H2020, either for evaluation criteria or in the definition of the workprogrammes, as a pre requirement for participation.
