The present deliverable, developed under WP2 Content Production, is one of the core output of the project: the Research Roadmap on Policy- Making 2.0. It aims at providing a common basis and a common set of concepts for researchers in a highly multidisciplinary context. But most of all, it aims to provide a clear outline of what technologies are available now for policy- makers to improve their work , and what can become available tomorrow.

Crossover builds on the results of the Crossroad project1, which delivered a research roadmap on the same topic in 2011. With respect to the previous roadmap, this document is firstly a revised and updated version. Beside this, is contains some fundamental novelties: - a demand- driven approach: rather than focussing on the technology, the present roadmap starts from the needs and the activities of policy- making and then links the research challenges to them - an additional emphasis on cases and applications: for each research challenge, we indicate relevant cases and practical solutions - a clearer thematic focus on ICT for Governance and Policy- Modeling, by dropping more peripheral grand challenges of Government Service Utility and Scientific Base for ICT- enabled Governance - a global coverage: while Crossroad focussed on Europe, Crossover includes cases and experiences from all over the world - a living roadmap: the present deliverable is accompanied by an online repositories of tools, people and applications

The CROSSOVER project aims to consolidate and expand the existing community on ICT for Governance and Policy Modeling (built largely within FP7) by: - bringing together and reinforcing the links between the different global communities of researchers and experts: it will create directories of experts and solutions, and animate knowledge exchange across communities of practice both offline and online; - reaching out and raising the awareness of non- experts and potential users, with special regard to high- level policy- makers and policy advisors: it will produce multimedia content, a practical handbook and high- level policy conferences with competition for prizes; - establishing the scientific and political basis for long- lasting interest and commitment to next generation policy- making, beyond the mere availability of FP7 funding: it will focus on use cases and a demand- driven approach, involving policy- makers and advisors in high- level conference, defining a collaborative stakeholders' declaration and developing a sustainability plan. The CROSSOVER project will pursue this goal through a combination of content production, ad hoc and well- designed online and offline animation; as well as strong links with existing communities outside the CROSSOVER project and outside the realm of e- Government
