• WeLive
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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.

    • SIMPATICO
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      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.  

    • RECAP
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      RECAP helps public administrations responsible for the implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to monitor farmers’ compliance to standards. This project proposes a methodology for improving the efficiency and transparency of the compliance monitoring procedure through a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. SaaS makes use of large volumes of publicly available data provided by satellite remote sensing, and user-generated data provided by farmers through mobile devices (geo-referenced and time-stamped photos).

    • OpenGovIntelligence
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      The OpenGovIntelligence project aims at stimulating sustainable economic growth in Europe through innovation in society and enterprises. OpenGovIntelligence suggests a holistic approach for the modernisation of Public Administration (PA) by exploiting Linked Open Statistical Data (LOSD) technologies. This includes new business processes, policies, and tools that would enable the active participation of the society and enterprises in data sharing and in the co-production of innovative data-driven public services.

    • OpenBudgets.eu
      PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

      The OpenBudgets platform is designed for public administrations, citizens, NGOs, media organisations, public service companies and stakeholders working with fiscal data.

      Openness and transparency can act as a disincentive to corruption. The current lack of open budget and open transaction data makes it very hard for citizens and other stakeholders to have an overview on public spending. The comparison of budgets between administrative regions and other government levels proves even more difficult.
