Comparative and interdisciplinary dimension of the research

  • Applied Information & Communications Technology (ICT)
  • Sociology
  • Economics
  • Evaluation techniques
  • Project Management

In this multi-disciplinary approach, over 30 specialists from more than 20 nationalities based within 19 European institutional partners shall work together to provide a carefully-designed and integrated approach to the various dimensions of an intricate set of issues. Their efforts would be complemented by at least ten other specialists sub-contracted within 12 other EU states.
