EIT Digital CivicBudget

Software platform for Internet-based participatory budgeting – Many cities in Europe and the U.S.A, and around the world, commit a percentage of their annual budget (often 5%) to implement citizen-proposed projects through a process called Participatory Budgeting (PB). However, supporting urban-scale participatory budgeting campaigns is greatly challenged as it still principally relies on physical meetings. CivicBudget addresses this challenge by leveraging latest ICT so as to promote urban-scale inclusion. CivicBudget fosters a new and inclusive urban public sphere of citizenship. MiMove contribution is on leveraging service-oriented computing to assemble customized PB campaigns, as well as to enable interoperability across social media for participants to interact using their preferred tools.
