Survey on the ICT Needs of Policy Makers

Today’s fast evolving, unstable and interconnected world makes it harder than ever for policymakers to take into account the full complexity of modern life.

New ICT tools – such as visualisation, modeling, simulation, opinion mining – can help policymakers address this challenge. The question remains, however, whether they currently do so and, if so, how well?

The Crossover Project is launching this short survey in order to a) answer these questions and b) build a new research roadmap to improve ICT for policymaking which will be launched before the final project conference in June 2013. The survey is composed of 3 shorts sections.
