Countries and institutions involved in the project

Aim of the project

Up to now, a wide variety of e-participation projects have been carried out throughout Europe, but a comparative analysis of these research results has not yet been carried out. CompEpart aims to close this gap by developing a comparative framework for the exchange of current research results on e-participation in local governments in the Baltic States and Germany, thereby initiating further joint research activities in order to strengthen knowledge/experience transfer in science-municipal development in the Baltic States. The project methodology will be based on concepts of policy evaluation.
