Demo-net D4.2: Multidisciplinary roadmap and report on eParticipation research

This is the second deliverable of WP4 “Setting challenges”. The overarching objective of this workpackage is to identify and respond to developing global research and innovation challenges in the field of eParticipation. The work involves analysing the European eParticipation research landscape in order to develop research agendas and roadmaps to govern the direction and future evolution of the network. Our recommendations are based on the findings from our global survey and research workshops. These are concerned with, firstly, the range of academic disciplines studying eParticipation, secondly, the similarities and differences on research emphasis between Europe and North America and thirdly, both the research and real-world fragmentation of the eParticipation area.
