A key output of the eCitizen II project - the Pan-European Best Practice Manual on eParticipation is now available online at www.eparticipation.eu, providing recommendations for local and regional administrations. This online tool allows practitioners all over Europe to share their best practice on implementing e-participation tools and processes. The use of online environments in the increasing communication with citizens requires specific actions that can be presented in five steps: expectations, planning, action, communication and evaluation. In this manual, each step is illustrated with sample cases: success stories as well as stories that are valuable lessons despite being failures. The online manual also provides detailed descriptions of each step and presents a list of questions that should be answered before entering into the next step of participatory decision-making.The database already includes 33 cases from all over Europe, which is the accumulated knowledge and good practice from eCitizen II interregional seminars, study tours and local workshops. The cases can be filtered by content and by country. Further case studies can be uploaded by any interested person, after registering to the platform.
eCitizen II supports European cities and regions in their efforts to accelerate e-government through exploiting established networks, gained experiences and good practices. The project stimulates new approaches and understanding to ensure support for the further promotion of eGovernment and citizen-centred e-services. By demonstrating the benefits of e-government and best e-participation practices, the 11 partners from 10 countries contribute to changing the operational culture and attitudes within local and regional public administrations. The project improves the interaction between citizens and public authorities, better involving citizens in local decision-making through the development of tools such as online forums. [+]
The project MY PLACE was a training course on Media production (Photos and Videos) and editing. Three Trainers and a Coordinator from AMISnet, the Italian Non-Profit Organization partner, trained 20 Participants and 7 Observers at Yafa Culture Center in Balata Camp of Nablus, a Palestinian city in the northern West Bank. Among the 27 participants and observers there were 19 Palestinians and 8 European participants. The action began with preparation activities between YCC (Yafa Culture Center) and Amisnet starting from 30th of January, 2012 to the 5th of February, 2012. The training Course started on Monday 6th. The participants were divided into three groups: photos, video and researchers group. Each group had one or two coordinator or trainer, working on the selected heritage places to produce a final documentary product. At the same time the participants were involved in a practical training on media production by the trainers.
At the end of the training course three kinds of final products were issued. The photography group selected twenty-four pictures among all the pictures taken during the fieldwork documentation. Each of the eight participants selected three pictures and added to them a note in a form of text, poetry or report describing her/his experience. These pictures have been printed and an exhibition has been organized in the Yafa Cultural Center in March 2012. This exhibition will be shown in Rome when a delegation from the YCC will be hosted by the partner organization for a dissemination activity. The exhibition has been created also with the aim of bringing these pictures around Europe as a result of an intense activity of the photography group and the meeting of young photographers from Palestine with a young professional.
The Video Group, from its side, has issued a short documentary movie with interviews of local people. This product will also constitute an important tool to disseminate the work done, and the meaning of documenting the old city of Nablus. It will be shown first in Rome, but also in other European cities where it will be possible to enhance the importance of the cultural past of Palestine and the importance of inclusion of young generation in this process of documentation. A third product was the result of the researchers’ group: a 24 pages booklet with pictures, text and photogrammetric surveys of five historical sites chosen among the old buildings of Nablus. The booklet - which has been printed in seven hundred copies - will be distributed in the tourism offices of Palestine to serve the local tourism development; some will also be distributed in Italy and other cities of Europe. All this material will travel with the exhibition in the future.
The project MY PLACE has been inspired by the need of study and research about the past of the city to encourage local population to valorize their cultural heritage. The project was a starting point of a wider strategy aiming to support their initiatives in media production to highlight their cultural heritage and to increase its visibility in their society. The spread of the new media among younger generations along with the freedom of information are amid the fundamental pillars of democracy processes in contemporary world. The knowledge of the historical past and the enhancement of cultural heritage are important elements to develop multiculturalism and cultural openness together with the construction of a national identity.

PROFORBIOMED promotes renewable energies (RE) in MED areas by developing an integrated strategy for the use of the forest biomass as a RE source, recovering the forest biomass potential, developing technical and legal aspects and promoting the use of forestry biomass for energy. The strategy relies on the involvement of key stakeholders in a forestry biomass production chain that takes into account sustainability and compatibility with other uses and provides new economic opportunities. It has a multi-sectorial dimension, working with public and private stakeholders related to forestry biomass chains at all levels (from European to local) and affecting 5 key policies: industry, energy, forests, agriculture and environment. It works on the valorisation of the forests as active sources of income that need proper management. The innovative aspects of the Project are related to the involvement of the diverse public and private stakeholders in the development of forestry biomass sector policies and actions. The PROFORBIOMED project is a strategic project under objective 2.2. "Promotion and renewable energy and improvement of energy efficiency".
The project will focus on the current weak points that prevent forestry biomass to be relevant for a sustainable development of territories, developing technical issues, supporting tools and policies, involving all stakeholders and creating structures that support the cooperation between public and private actors. On the other hand, it will develop pilot experiences on 13 topics, trying to reinforce the cooperation among stakeholders and serving as demonstration and transfer tools of know-how on technical and management issues.
The project will bring on strategic long term impacts in rural areas on social, economic and environmental conditions and public policies. The main outputs will be technical proposals on practices and policies, a model on public support scheme and financing opportunities in forest biomass chain, development of agreements between public and private actors, transfer and application of know-how regarding forest and biomass management, creation of clusters and networks in rural areas and implementation of the smart grids concept to the biomass production chain.
The most relevant result is the promotion of RE and the involvement of key stakeholders in a forestry biomass production chain that improves governance of rural areas, reduces natural risks and fosters new economic opportunities. Moreover, results will contribute to restore the potential and conservation status of Mediterranean forests, halting their declining and promoting their active management and conservation. Finally, it will guarantee more secure supply of energy with mobilisation of wood biomass from forests and will enable the adoption of the smart grids concept to the RE chains.
PROFORBIOMED is the result of the merging of three different proposals related to biomass presented in the first stage of the call (PROFORBIOMED, BIO PRO ENERGY and MEDITMASS) and involves 18 partners from 6 countries and 16 MED regions. [+]

The Project seeks to provide general and innovative answers based on territorial governance to the changes and threats faced by Mediterranean rural landscapes through the cooperation of participating territories. Landscape planning models and tools will be developed within the framework of the Project, and such models and tools will be transferable to other Mediterranean territories sharing the same characteristics, to ultimately build a European network of territories adhering to a “Mediterranean Rural Landscape Chart” defined under the Project.
The idea was proposed by Matarraña, a rural territory with immense landscape resources threatened by transformations taking place in rural areas. These rural territories have been isolated for years, but trade, tourism and European policies have favored a prompt opening with resulting new needs: communication, exchange of knowledge, experiences and strategies for the future. The partnership of the project is composed of 5 rural territories from 5 countries in the Mediterranean basin: Italy, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and France. [+]
POWER is a 5.8 million Euros programme funded through INTERREG IVC between September 2008 and March 2012. Seven European regions (Andalusia, Emilia-Romagna, Malopolska, Noord- Brabant, South East England, Stockholm and Tallinn) joined forces to share their experience on how best to move towards low carbon economies.
Regional governments can and already are playing a major role in climate action, implementing actions close to their citizens and setting examples with innovative regional approaches. POWER has represented a key opportunity for these seven European regions, together with stakeholders from business, government , knowledge institutions and civil society to share experiences, develop actions and further collaborate towards the EU energy targets and ahead of COP17 in Durban and the Rio +20 summit in 2012.

The main aim of the EUROSTUDENT project is to collate comparable data on the social dimension of European higher education.
It focuses on the socio-economic background and on the living conditions of students, but it also investigates temporary international mobility. The project strives to provide reliable and insightful cross-country comparisons. It does this through coupling a central coordination approach with a strong network of national partners in each participating country. In this way, an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the respective national frameworks in international comparison can be made.
The main users of our findings are higher education policy-makers at national and European level, researchers in this field, managers of higher education institutions and - of course - students all over Europe. The reporting structure of EUROSTUDENT consists of a comparative report and a more detailed, searchable database, which enables users to download data and a full National Profile for each country (see here). The national and comparative data have also been used for many associated reports (see here). The fourth round of EUROSTUDENT began in November 2008 and was completed in October 2011. 25 European countries actively contributed to this round of the project. [+]
