Groningen University

The University of Groningen is among the most respected universities in the world and participates and has participated in various international and EU co-financed projects. The faculty of Spatial Sciences in its core scientific research program focuses on the interrelation between well-being, innovation and spatial transformation. This theme is approached from both economics and real estate, from planning, from culture and demography and health. The team around Sijtsma has specific expertise in online tools for identifying soft values in spatial planning and policy, and in building online communities around areas.

Our main role is to use the latest scientific insights to set up innovative ways of involving citizens in online value mapping tools and to develop virtual parliament tools and experiences useable by the partners in the project.
