Contribution to Work Groups
The “E-coop project” partnership, gathering 13 partners from 12 EU countries and representing local authorities and ICT related networks and stakeholders, has expressed the will to investigate how the DPS (Digital Public Spaces) could evolve, based on mediation between the uses and the users, to become “E-coops” (digital cooperatives) and offer new services interacting in a more collaborative way with the users. Taking an active part in various types of networks, “E-coops” could prefigure a new generation of DPS, considering users not only as consumers of public services, but mostly as co-designers of innovative solutions.
