Planning decision making in a local or regional government across Europe involve both the intentions and objectives of the government itself, but inevitably also both unknown and intertwined objectives of the set of stakeholders who are directly or indirectly affected by different proposed future directions.

This project aims to create a digitalized and user-friendly workflow by integrating and adapting market survey and decision analysis methods.

Key benefits are scalable and cost-effective solution to enable early, pro-active citizen participation for empowerment in public decision processes, transparency around all stakeholder groups inputs and the provision of tools for making rational and sustainable decisions in complex environments.

  • Involve Core stakeholders and Market forces  in an Enabling environment to express their view in order to participate in the planning process.

This project will use a co-creation methodology in order to facilitate open and collaborative innovation.

The concept of co-creation is different from the traditional push and pull approaches, as it actually implies that different parties actually ‘create’ something together, instead of one part developing something for the other to use (push-approach), or expressing a clear request or need to the other (pull-approach).
