According to the general perception of the science and technology development the public is confined to the role of the passive recipient, without any control or influence on the technology trends and research priorities. Innovation benefits suddenly occur without considering the general consensus or the social consequences they may cause. In this framework, P.U.S.H. project aims at developing a social Communication Methodology relying on an Internet-based platform enabling for a direct and in real time consultation of the public on specific issues, simultaneously delivering, in a direct and easy to access way all those relevant information, outstanding opinions, current controversies while highlighting ambiguous aspects which are the basis for a constructive and conscious dialogue.
