Description

One of the key aspects towards the success of the Bologna Process and the creation of unified European Higher Education Area is the close cooperation and interaction between governments, higher education institutions, students, staff, employers and quality assurance agencies. However in practice this is hard to achieve and the process lacks the active participation of a large number of students and university stakeholders. For this purpose we have conceived MyUniversity, an innovative project that aims at empowering all university members and stakeholders in the higher education decision process, by the means of a transparent and extremely user friendly e-Participation platform. Using this platform together with specialized training on e-Participation and its impact on decision making, participant universities will be able to engage their members and stakeholders on multiple issues to get their feedback, both locally and at European level. This platform is based on the integration and customisation of three existing and mature platforms Demos@Work, Gov2Demos and Pnyx. Two of which have been co-funded by the European Commission. The Consortium has demonstrated experience in the delivery of e-Participation solutions, and a diverse range of skills at its disposal, due to the fact that it is composed of a large IT corporation, an SME, an NGO with wide experience in e-Participation projects, and 17 individual universities (the end-users of MyUniversity) arrayed across 7 different EU member states. Taking all of this into account, MyUniversity's specific objectives are completely attainable with the resources and timeframe provided for the project.
