POWER project kickoff

Lisbon – 20th January 2016, as part of the POWER project consortium, Baseform was present in the kick off meeting, last week in Brussels.

Baseform is proud to be part of the first consortium to deploy a Digital Social Platform under the 'Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation' Initiative promoted by the European Union’s DG Connect.

About the POWER project

POWER is an EIP Water Action Group-related project pioneering the DSP approach  to share the knowledge and experience of water scarcity, security, quality and water consumption-related issues in different EU local authorities, thus creating a valuable tool for EU water policy. It aims at being a user-driven platform, sharing knowledge and experience in water scarcity, security, quality and water consumption-related issues in different EU local authorities, thus creating an important tool for EU water policy.

It is hoped that POWER will contribute to increasing the transnational municipal network effect by facilitating unrestricted communication and community involvement and by creating collective intelligence on ways of addressing urban climate change mitigation and adaptation, targeting water related concerns. It will equally influence related policy planning and decisions and expand related socially innovative behaviour.


The POWER Digital Social Platform will support decision making at strategic and policymaking levels.
