FEED eParticipation Project Started !

Federated eParticipation Systems for Cross-
Societal Deliberation on Environmental and
Energy Issues

The main objective of FEED is to apply a new concept in e-Participation by allowing users to have seamless access to existing federated content that matches their needs for information supporting the several aspects of a public deliberation, when focusing Environmental and Energy issues. Through FEED, existing federated content and/or other knowledge material (some of it already under processing and by other current eParticipation projects), are contextually annotated or channeled according to the issue and deliberation process specifics, allowing this way the platform users to perceive, search for and retrieve it in the contest of a participative e-activity.
