TROPICO

Transforming into Open, Innovative and Collaborative Governments

TROPICO is an international research consortium investigating how public administrations are transformed to enhance collaboration in policy design and service delivery, advancing the participation of public, private and societal actors. It will analyse collaboration in and by governments, with a special emphasis on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), and its consequences from a comparative perspective.
