A new EU-funded research project

On 6th and 7th of March 2023 eco-union is in Lisboa attending the kick-off meeting of the new EU-funded project INCITE-DEM. The project
aims at enhancing inclusive participation and civic engagement, while expanding democratic innovation and dynamic feedback mechanisms between citizens and institutional actors in Europe.

Based on high quality research, the project will experiment with inclusive design processes for democratic innovation in practice, by setting up Democracy labs in 6 countries, including Spain. Experiences and research will be translated into specific policy guidance and strategic policy roadmaps for a sustainable, inclusive, and innovative democracy in a world in transformation.

INCITE-DEM is implemented by 10 partners from 9 different countries. The consortium is led by Portuguese FCiências.ID from Lisboa University, while other partners are University of Muenster (Germany), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway), University of Groningen (Netherlands), University of Helsinki (Finland), Tallinn University (Estonia), Instituto de Ciências Sociais – University of Lisbon (Portugal), Eco-Union Association (Spain), Focus Association for Sustainable Development (Slovenia) and Kyoto Club (Italy).

It is supported by the Horizon programme of the EU and it will run in the period March 2023 – February 2026.
