Project Reports

The project will deliver several reports about achievements of the project. The following are available for free download:

This document details operational specifications of concept, methods and procedures to be applied for the purposes of the WeGovNow project in relation to research & innovation aspects, usability and e-accessibility aspects as well as legal, data protection and ethical aspects.

This document, a new version of D1.1 updated on the basis of the progress made within the first 12 months of the project, details concepts, methods and procedures to be applied for the purposes of the WeGovNow project in relation to research & innovation aspects, usability and eaccessibility aspects as well as legal, data protection and ethical aspects.

The document provides a framework for the engagement work to be carried out within WeGovNow. The objective is to develop a greater understanding of stakeholder needs and to develop mechanisms that increase the level and quality of involvement in community life and the decisions governing them. Engagement activities will be undertaken at the project’s three validation sites in the London borough of Southwark (UK), City of Turin and San Dona di Pave (Italy). This includes appropriate engagement of communities and other stakeholders who form an integral part of the research carried out in this project and who will be actively involved in the development of the WeGovNow platform. An initial generic plan for engagement is presented as part of this deliverable, which is to be fine-tuned and further detailed as work progresses during the various stages of the project.

The report describes the revised methodological approach adopted for service scenario and use case design in the context of development of the WeGovNow online platform. It then presents the outcomes generated in terms of an initial set of use cases to be further refined / extended according to the workplan. A brief outlook to the upcoming worksteps is included as well. A number of annexes include detailed outcomes of a method review undertaken; generic user requirements and several examples of personas and user stories derived from the initial scoping analysis; and the reporting template used for user scenario analysis.

This document details the consolidated architecture of the WeGovNow platform prototype. WeGovNow integrates a number of civic engagement applications that existed prior to the project together with various newly developed software components into a single online platform. With a view to facilitating further utilisation of the WeGovNow platform within different local contexts, the architecture furthermore enables modular configuration of individual implementation instances. Also, it is principally extendable with further applications which potentially may be desired to be added in future implementation instances.

This document describes the first release of WeGovNow platform prototype. This release is intended to provide a working environment for development and testing purposes as well as for involving further stakeholders at the three WeGovNow pilot sites during the next stage of platform development.

This report presents a conceptual and methodological framework for evaluating the three WeGovNow trials which are to be implemented during the second half of the project. Precise evaluation objectives are specified and evaluation methods as well as tangible outputs to be generated are described. Also, a roadmap for preparing and conducting onsite evaluation activities at each of the three trial sites is presented.

This document presents the project’s dissemination strategy, which has the objective to help the project achieve the largest possible impact in Europe. It describes the main target audiences of dissemination activities, the publication policy, the main dissemination materials & channels to be used (including online and social media presence as well as publications and presentations to both academic and non-academic audiences), and first plans for collaboration with third parties.

This document presents WeGovNow dissemination activities undertaken in the first 12 months of the project. They were guided by the objective to help the project achieve the largest possible impact in Europe. Dissemination activities will be stepped up in 2017, as so far most of the project’s activities have been devoted to conceptualising and developing the WeGovNow platform.

The report includes a detailed description of gender and ethics related requirements to be met by the project according to requirements elicitation work conducted during the project's start-up phase (Task 1.3) as well as related guidelines and templates to be applied for adequately responding to the identified requirements (e.g. consent form). The framework also includes a description of management procedures and tools to be applied for compliance monitoring throughout the entire project duration. Besides other ethics and gender related requirements identified in WP1, this will also concern all requirements put forward in the Ethics Screening Report.

According to available guidance, H2020 projects are to provide a first version of the Data Management Plan (DMP) within the first six months of the project. The DMP should be updated during the project lifetime. The present document outlines the initial DMP for the WeGovNow project. It describes the project’s current view on the data management life cycle for the datasets to be collected, processed or generated for the purposes of the WeGovNow pilot evaluation. This refers to the handling of evaluation data during & after the project. In particular the current document sets out an initial view on what data will be collected and processed. It also describes an initial view on the methodology & standards which will be applied and how data are expected to be shared with any external parties. According to the workplan, the current version of the DMP will be updated on the basis of a dedicated evaluation framework to be developed until project month 12 (D4.1). The final DMP will be presented in a dedicated deliverable (D6.3).
