The democracy network

Objective

DEMO-NET will promote and develop, through a focussed and integrated research programme, technological and socio-technical excellence in eParticipation tools and methodologies. DEMO-NET will build on the experience accumulated by leading European research organisations that have studied the underlying principles of eParticipation and actively worked with governments across Europe in applying and evaluating eParticipation. DEMO-NET will advance the way research is carried out in Europe with respect to quality, efficiency, innovation and impact to overcome the currently fragmented approach to eParticipation in this important European research area.

To achieve this DEMO-NET will:
- Co-ordinate and integrate the members? research activities clustered around 7 research and technological objectives
- Achieve close and sustained co-operation between government and academia, in order to improve the quality of research and understanding on both sides.
- Assess and compare research already made on eParticipation in cities, regions and countries across Europe and worldwide.
- Promote equal opportunities for women in eParticipation research.
- Provide the necessary technological infrastructure to facilitate discussion, co-operation and data exchange.
- Mobilise relationships among the many stakeholders involved with participation research and also those dependant on the results of that research.
- Ensure dissemination of research outcomes to widest possible audience for the benefit of researchers, government and citizens.

DEMO-NET is designed help secure the future of democracy and the participation of citizens in decision-making processes within public administrations and public- agencies, and to address the various needs for eParticipation and eGovernance in the different EU member countries. To ensure sustainability of the research and dissemination of the results expert practitioners from government agencies will support DEMO-NET across Europe.
