Role in the project

DEUSTO’s role is related to data management covering all data research cycles from the definition of the data management plan (Workpackage 1) to the design of project indicators and monitoring methods (Workpackage 9). We have also an important participation with respect to citizen engagement and the design of participatory strategies, being responsible of Data Commons ATELIER (Workpackage 3), design and implementation of smart iterations tools (Workpackage 5), or the citizen science activities (Workpackage 7). DEUSTO will work both on transversal activities linked to the definition of terms and methodologies (Workpackages1, 3, 7, 9) as well as in low level implementation details connected to data management or social activities in Bilbao (Workpackage 5).
