project rationale
Project Rationale

Numerous relevant eParticipation projects with diverse

objectives,

scope & expected results

reflecting the stakeholders’ varying expectations

This fragmented approach does not enable either

to collectively address the key issues of the eParticipation paradigm

or (and more importantly) to identify complementarities and

eventually exploit synergies thus achieving economies of scale

MOMENTUMaims to bridge this gap

The MOMENTUM concept

The main contribution of the MOMENTUM project lies in the support action of creating a network of existing & new eParticipation projects funded by the EU in order to monitor, evaluate, consolidate and disseminate their results
