The first meeting of the EUCROWD project took place in Ljubljana on 25 October. The aim of the kick-off meeting was to introduce project partners and to confirm a common understanding of project objectives and activities. For that purpose, partners discussed framework for the EU citizens crowdsourcing pilot, methodology for implementing national events and deliverables for the on-line knowledge centre on Digital Democracy. The second part of the meeting was dedicated to dissemination, administrative and financial aspects of the project.
