DemocracIT: An open platform for enhancing the participation of citizens in public debate

Duration: 18 months, starting October 2014
Budget: 55.000 euro (Budget for Harokopio University: 6.000€)
Scientific Director: Iraklis Varlamis

DemocracIT will create an open platform that utilizes the public consultations in order to:

  • Increase the citizens influence in policy making.
  • Provide resources to measure the overall influence of public consultations in policy formulation
  • Facilitate the governmental bodies in the exploitation of information hidden in open consultations' comments.

The platform integrates tools from text mining and applied artificial intelligence techniques in order to facilitate the flow of information towards citizens and other stakeholders and to maximize the utilization rate of raw data (comments).
