Citizen Empowerment Tools (CET)

This is a five-year research (2015-2020) that questions: How can digital tools design support the empowerment of the urban bottom-up movement?

As part of the Citizen Data Lab of the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, together with Reinier Tromp I executed support literature research for the PhD research of Ruurd Priester on the topic of Citizen Empowerment Tools. The other part of the project I was involved in was the second datasprint – using tools of the Digital Methods Initiative (DMI) – and data analysis after the sprint. Out of co-creation within this research Gebiedonline emerged.
