Crossover News

ICT is changing policy making. Technologies for  open data, opinion mining, collaboration, visualization, modelling and simulation promise to enable a more evidence-based and timely governance. Yet policy makers struggle to grasp the existing opportunities, also because of the lack of exchange between people developing and using such innovations, across countries, policy domains and scientific disciplines. In this context, the project CROSSOVER project (, co-funded by the European Commission, aims to consolidate and expand the existing community on ICT for Governance and Policy Modelling by:

Reaching out and raising the awareness of non-experts and potential users, with special regard to high-level policy-makers and policy advisors, clarifying demand driven research needs and policy recommendations Establishing the scientific basis for long-lasting interest and commitment to next generation policy-making

In order to increase the project impact the consortium will engage the services of specialized communications professionals on the theme of ICT for governance and policy modeling.
