Sense4us project at the starting line!

A three year project, co-funded by the Seventh Framework Programme, aims to facilitate the policy-making processes
BRUSSELS - Dec. 9, 2013 - PRLog -- The official launch of the Sense4us project took place on 13-15 November 2013, bringing together seven academic, technical and civil society organizations from across Europe.

Sense4us will research ways to make policy-making more effective using cutting edge research and technologies. The online tool that will be created by the project will:

-          Gather and summarize information from multiple sources (i.e. open data, citizen generated data, forums etc.), thus helping policy makers find and use effectively the most relevant and updated information when forming policies

-          Enable policy-makers to simulate the impacts and consequences of different policy options before policies are formally adopted. This modeling of policies will allow policy-makers to choose the proposal that best fits their objectives and will help to avoid unintended consequences.

The project consortium will be led by University of Southampton – IT Innovation and is composed of:

The Open University – Knowledge Media Institute, University of Koblenz-Landau – Institute WeST, GESIS-Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Government to you (Gov2u), Hansard Society Ltd, eGovlab (DSV- Stockholm University).

The project will be completed in 36 months.
