Open Collaboration in Policy Modelling

Objective

OCOPOMO addresses two levels of scientific and technological advancements:1)\tSocio-political: to formulate, model, evaluate and monitor social and economic policies of governments, which are supported by2)\tScientific and technological innovations: drawing together lessons and practical techniques from complexity science, agent based social simulation, foresight scenario analysis and advanced ICT for e-participation.OCOPOMO develops an integrated IT platform for efficient policy development by integrating formal policy modelling, scenario generation, and open collaboration supporting engagement of wide stakeholder groups in social and economic policy areas of two pilots. The project builds on methods and tools of policy modelling and scenario-based foresight and integrates them into a platform of open collaboration among key stakeholders (policy analysts, policy operators, wider interest groups of specific policy domains, etc.) using e-participation tools.The outcomes of OCOPOMO are:a)\tIT solutions (e-governance toolbox) supporting the engagement and open collaboration of participating stakeholders in collaborative scenario-development and in reflexive discussions about resulting formal policy models;b)\tA general model of macroeconomic relations deduced as much as possible from data available at national and European level, and enriched with the commonalities deduced in the two pilot policy areas;c)\tTwo policy analyses related to the strategic economic and social development policies in regions in Italy and Slovakia. The policy analyses will be based on both formal simulation models and narrative scenarios;The policy analyses are generated with the precision and clarity of formal models and rich contextual narrative scenarios resulting from the combination of scenario-based foresight and formal policy modelling. The e-governance ICT toolbox facilitates the policy creation, analysis, modelling and evaluation in a comprehensive way.
