    • WeLive

      The WeLive project is devised to transform the current e-government approach by facilitating a more open model of design, production and delivery of public services leveraging on the collaboration between public administrations (PAs), citizens and entrepreneurs. WeLive applies the quadruple-helix approach based on the joint collaboration of 3 PAs, 4 research agents and 5 companies, constituing the consortium, plus citizens to deliver next generation personalised user-centric public services.

    • WeGovNow

      WeGovNow will tap into emerging technologies for effectively supporting co-production by civic society stakeholders and collective proposition development, whereby citizens are partners, as opposed to customers, in the delivery of public services. By integrating a set of innovative technologies within a unified citizen engagement platform, the project will overcome the current limitations of existing digital tools for citizen reporting, e-participation and communication between the citizen and the government.

    • STEP

      The objective of the STEP is to develop and test a pilot cloud eParticipation SaaS platform which would be available both as a mobile application and through a web platform. If the work plan is rolled out as initially expected, the platform will be enhanced with web / social media mining, gamification, machine translation, and visualisation features, which will promote the societal and political participation of young people in the decision-making process on environmental issues.


      SONNETS will tackle the issue of empowering the public sector in becoming a core innovation driver by dedicating itself to the following core questions:

    • smarticipate

      Smarticipate aims to bring the public into the urban planning process, giving citizens access to data about their city and enabling them to better support local decision-making. The platform will be tested in three major European cities: London, Rome, and Hamburg.


      Online services made available by the public administration (PA) typically rely on standardised processes, copied from their offline counterparts and designed only from the public sector organizations’ own perspective. This often results in online services that fail to adapt to the specific needs of citizens and companies.


      ROUTE-TO-PA's target is to increase transparency by providing help and guidance to citizens in making sense of the open data that is provided by the Public Administration.
      The approach is to provide tools and methods that involve citizens, together, in using effectively open data to increase their active participation.
