About project

Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the Bank of IDEAS of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility! The Bank of IDEAS is a collection of ideas of ICT tools for better governance and e-Democracy aimed at empowering digital participation of civil society in collecting and analysing data, improving transparency and communication of governmental decisions and spending, and enabling broader participation of citizens in decision-making process.

These ideas are the brainchild of civil activists, IT professionals and designers from the Eastern Partnership countries participating in regional hackathons organised by our Project to work face-to-face on software projects. This cross-border collaboration will result in the development of prototypes of web interfaces, portals, interactive maps, bots and mobile applications on a wide range of topics in high demand by civil society in all EaP countries. Learn more about the Project’s hackathons here.

Each tool born from the Bank of IDEAS will be a unique instrument with its own vision and team behind. Our Project believes in sharing and replication of good practices and ideas between the countries and communities, so everyone is welcome to explore this platform. If you find an idea you want to collaborate on, need more information or have interest in supporting some of the ideas or teams, please contact us.
