According to Kristina Reinsalu the methodology allows better planning and designing of e-participation initiatives and measuring their impact. “While creating the assessment framework, the project partners thoroughly analyze the cases of e-participation in various countries and define the main success criteria for the impact assessment and the most impactful success factors. In the next phase, we will carry out five crowdsourcing pilot projects and measure their impact by using this methodology,“ she said.

The project Co-Deciding Europe: Civic Tech for Good Governance and Active Citizenship aims to develop and test in real life an innovative model for citizen engagement in public policy decision-making based on enhanced tools for e-participation and digital democracy. The project is financed by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation.

The EGOV2021 – IFIP EGOV-CeDEM-EPART 2021 Conference focused on e-government, open government, e-participation and e-democracy and related topics. The conference was organised by the IFIP and the University of Granada.
