We are extremely happy to report on our activities in 2018!
In 2018 the Institute of Innovative Governance launched and managed three international projects, conducted research and policy analysis in the area of social innovations, e-democracy, women empowerment and digital transformation. We were also engaged in consultancy work, held trainings on social innovations for private and public sectors and launched e-petitions.
Inclusive E-Democracy – a civic-tech web-checker which analyses web-platforms on accessibility. We managed to adapt the websites of City Councils in Ukraine and France. In 2019 we aim to introduce the legislation on web-accessibility in Ukraine;officially launch IIG certification of web-accessibility; engage in social entrepreneurship by adapting the web platforms in Ukraine and Estonia with the assistance of our partners from Google and Funka.

E-Women platform – is an online platform where women express their ideas on cities’ improvement through e-petitions. A special feature of the E-Women platform on marking unsafe places in cities on maps will be available in 2019. We also expect to expand the project to 6 EaP countries next year.

EU Lobby Bot – is an algorithm which helps citizens who have questions or proposals to Members of the EU Parliament to identify MEPs who are working on the issue of their interest. Apart from identifying the most suitable MEPs it searches for their contacts at different platforms and suggests them to users. The project is expected to be implemented in 2019 together with our partners from Nantes Creative Generations in Nantes, Porto and Bucharest.
We’ve been working hard on media coverage of our projects and programs. In 2018 we appeared 134 times in Ukrainian and international media, and we are certainly proud of it! More people know about IIG – more changes we can make together!
