PolicyOracle: Predicting Outcomes of Key Policy Indices

Your expert opinion on macroeconomic indicators considered by policy makers to shape policies in Europe? The SYMPHONY European research project (http://projectsymphony.eu/) implemented an online market simulation called PolicyOracle to monitor your expectation changes about key policy indices in real time. Participants are able to place bets on future prices of pivotal resources or future political events. By harvesting the crowd-intelligence provided by many informed individuals, policymakers are enabled to anticipate these predictions in their policy decisions. On top of that, you can learn about the expectations of your peers.   Read more

Simpol Project: Crowdsourcing for Transparency in the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework

Strongly influenced by lobbying activities, the EU took a step back on some of its climate targets within the 2030 framework for climate and energy policy. With the SIMPOL project, we are developing a new collaborative tool to identify the interests at stake in the complex negotiation process between different national- and EU institutions. You can help in creating a more complete picture of the organizations involved and their potential impact on the policy process by contributing to our crowdsourcing project. As a result, an interactive graph will enable you to explore and enrich the network of relevant stakeholders, their lobbying activities and other important attributes.
