 SEISMIC
helps tackle Europe’s biggest urban
problems by engaging citizens, identifying social
innovation needs, and contributing to future urban
policies and research strategies
 Builds
diverse networks of urban stakeholders to
propose effective, widely agreed solutions. It then
engages the public in creative ways, so that research
learns from citizens, and citizens learn from research

 SEISMiC
creates a platform to discuss and explore
paths of integrated urban development
 Contributes
to JPI Urban Europe by adding a social
dimension to its Strategic Research and Innovation
Agenda as well as making sure a wider selection
of stakeholders participate in the JPI Urban Europe
Forum

Public administrations need to address the new challenges
posed by the evolution of society
 The take-up of new technologies, such as social media and
mobile technologies, leads to increased connectivity
 The availability of open data and open services, in an open
government setting support the collaborative forms of service
design and delivery and they increase transparency
 Personalised public services can arise from enabling and
empowering citizens and businesses to directly participate in
the design, creation, selection and delivery of some of the
public services.

Pressure on all public administrations to provide efficient,
open and citizen-centric public services
 Due to the increased use of mobile technology as well as the
increasing availability of public information, data and online
services, public services can be transformed
 Coupling open public data and services with information and
services offered by the private sector can lead to innovative,
user-friendly and personalised services that can be accessed
easily
 Aim is to help the interaction of citizens and businesses with
public administrations – for example - combination of public
and private sector services, through mobile technologies

Essential to promote innovation to foster efficient, open
citizen-centric public services. This innovation also addresses
the challenge of social change and user needs
 To improve efficiency, effectiveness and quality of public
services, the public sector needs to implement new processes,
products, services and methods of delivery
 Further research, identifying the specific challenges of the
public sector, such as policy domain requirements and the
needs of targeted citizens or businesses is needed
 Requires multidisciplinary research taking into account the
societal, political as well as human factors, including citizens
and civil servants - where relevant involving users and citizens
in the design of public services is critical
