The EU “Smarticipate” project, funded bu the Euroepan Commision, is getting city dwellers involved in planning and political decision-making processes. The main concept of the project is based on the idea to give to the public, but also politicians, the right resources at an early stage to collectively drive forward decisions. This wiil provide a completely fresh basis to shape processes, gain wider acceptance and will create a sense of wellbeing in their city.        

“Smarticipate” is a pilot project in the cities of Hamburg, London and Rome that is set to be used throughout Europe in the future as a platform for supporting decision-making. The basis for decision-making processes is provided by the underlying and geographical data given by the cities. The three cities are processing the sometimes extremely large and always heterogeneous volumes of data in such a way that members of the public and all stakeholders in the decision-making process are given a visual, easy to understand overview for information but also for interaction.
