  38. 38. Commitment from policy level Give incentives participation Save money on interface interoperability Power of Social Media Look for EU collaborations (FI-PPP, Horizon 2020, ENOLL, Eurocities) Create local hero’s for Civic engagement(policy level) PLATFORMS? YES. @KatalinG
  39. 39. Peer reviewed platforms (Tech spotters!) Take a risk by defrosting a part of the budget of service design Better to arrange external ICT maintenance or leverage on open source platforms Do it City Wide!
