The comments and voting stage of the 12th IOPD Award has finished

The 20 most-voted candidacies have passed on to the final stage thanks to the support from other members of the PARTICIPATE OIDP platform

Yesterday, the comments and voting stage of the 12th IOPD Award finished. The 20 candidacies which had the greatest support have moved on to the final. More than 100 IOPD members with the right to vote have participated in this stage from the total of 190 users who are currently part of PARTICIPATE OIDP. During this period, the platform members have asked questions and written comments to the people who submitted the proposals in order to know the details of their innovative practices. Unlike last edition, this year this deliberative stage has been added to prompt the interaction among the members of our network.

The 20 most-voted candidacies will be evaluated by a jury of international experts who will evaluate a complete sheet of each innovative experience in citizen participation.
