Making and implementing policy at any governmental level is a difficult task. Policy-makers and specialists must rely on readily available public information sources that rely on historic, rather than current data. Moreover, they lack the resources and methodology to be able to access current data and take the views of the citizens into consideration when forming policies. Sense4us project will cover this need for tools and techniques and will create a toolkit that will support information gathering, analyzing and policy modelling in real time. The package of utilities will be based on cutting-edge research.
The ultimate objective of the Sense4us project is to take recent advances in policy modelling and simulation, data analytics and social network discussion dynamics. Sense4us will further develop them into integrated tools which will make public service and policy provision faster and more effective. This way, the project will provide both economic and social benefits at local, national and supra-national levels across Europe.
A selection of the functionalities that will be provided by the tools that will be developed in the project:
