Impact

Expected impact:

(1) Improved awareness among project target groups, especially (young) European citizens and EU decision-makers, about the possibilities of using crowdsourcing as an innovative channel of e-participation in EU policy making-process;

(2) Publicly accessible an on-line repository (Knowledge centre on Digital Democracy) of international crowdsourcing practices and state-of-the-art knowledge of citizen-crowdsourcing at the national and European level;

(3) Policy recommendations based on national conferences discussions and best cases review on both the most suitable policies to be crowdsourced at EU level and the most appropriate e-participation tools to be used in order to foster participation of citizens in debate on the Future of Europe. Draft framework for an EU level pilot of crowdsourcing on the future of Europe will include the general structure, modalities and practical steps.

(4) Established community of practitioners and supporters including citizens, civil society and other stakeholders which have an interest in advocating and promoting the EU level crowdsourcing initiative as a part of the European open government and digital democracy development.
