"VOICES is a Europe-wide public consultation process in the area of urban waste to pilot a methodology and process to involve European citizens in the definition of research priorities.
The Ecsite network will host 99 focus groups, involving a total of 990 citizens in all European countries to provide ideas, values, needs and expectations about the theme “Urban waste and innovation”. The results of the consultation will be used by the Consolidation group set up with call SiS.2013.1.2.1-2.
The methodology used for the public consultation adheres to the highest academic standards and will be validated by an advisory group. The data from the consultations will be analyzed and aggregated at national and European level; citizens and stakeholders will be able to comment on the results before these are finalized.
A series of public events will disseminate the results of the consultations and will highlight the participatory process. Moreover, an on-line tool will document the entire process and will provide open data access to the results of the consultation.
The project will be externally evaluated with respect to process and outcomes."
