Partners

The TID+ project is a joint effort by a consortium of three organisations.

e-Governance Academy

The e-Governance Academy (eGA) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation founded for the creation and transfer of knowledge concerning ICT in governance and democracy and the development of civil society.

The e-Governance Academy is both an observer and initiator of eDemocracy initiatives, and adheres to a pragmatic and independent approach to the use of ICT to enhance citizen’s involvement in democratic processes. The Academy has a long-standing expertise on e-governance projects, and can help you organise and implement the TID+ tool.

The State Chancellery of the Republic of Estonia supports the Government of the Republic and the Prime Minister in policy drafting and implementation, and supports the activities of Ministers who do not lead a ministry. The State Chancellery helps ensure good governance.

As it was responsible for the TOM tool, in which the TID+ project found inspiration, and now manages osale.ee, a new Estonian eParticipation portal, the State Chancellery has intimate knowledge of what eDemocracy involves from the side of government and administration.

European University Institute

The European Union Democracy Observatory (EUDO) within the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence, Italy, is an independent academic organisation. Its goal is to produce a permanent and periodic assessment of democratic practices within the EU. EUDO also serves as a forum to exchange ideas and best practices and constitutes an indispensable resource for policy makers, academics and, crucially, citizens throughout Europe.

EUDO and the EUI add an indispensible experience concerning the analysis of the impact of eParticipation on civil society.

This involvement of partners from civil society, academia and government ensures a multi-angle approach to the topic of eParticipation, and has lead to a comprehensive result.
