Project Objectives Today, in an increasingly interdependent, unstable and complex world: * policy-makers continue not to be supported by tools to anticipate emerging problems and the impact of possible solutions, * citizens are becoming more physically participant and vocal in monitoring and influencing policy decisions. The new challenge is to offer possible solutions to the above points. Opportunities: Emerge ICT tools for governance and policy modeling through the dramatic and combined growth of data availability, analysis and simulation tools, accounting for diversity of human behavior. However, research and deployment are fragmented between academic fields, policy domains, geographical areas, technological layers and type of stakeholders. CROSSOVER will pursue [its mission] through a combination of content production, ad hoc and well-designed online and offline animation, as well as strong links with existing communities outside CROSSOVER and the realm of eGovernment. CROSSOVER Project CP _82e77a34-0341-11e2-a11c-b1bf522abe92 This project is co-funded by the EC under the FP7 Programme.
