Several citizens crowdsourcing cases and platforms at the national level relevant for a crowdsourcing pilot at the EU level were identified, presented and discussed during EUCROWD events.
The list of 12 cases from 7 EU countries is available at http://www.inepa.si/eucrowd/results/#Cases.
The following shared expectations relating to the EU level pilot crowdsourcing platform were identified by citizens, experts and government officials during EUCROWD workshops:
- engage citizens in crowdsorcing of policy areas affecting daily life;
- be transparent about the process and use open standards;
- policymakers must take into consideration citizens’ contributions;
- enable deliberation and co-creation;
- follow user-friendly design and web accessibility standards;
- protect the privacy of its users and deal with security issues;
- disseminate widely and provide multilingual communication.
