Deliverable D1.12 Updated validation and socio-economic impacts report
The validation and impact assessment activities in the Ground Truth 2.0 project consist of formal, evidence-based procedures measuring project results against specific reference points:
- The Impact assessment aims to capture social, institutional, economic and environmental changes that can be attributed to the Ground Truth 2.0 Demo Cases, comparing the situation during and following the up-scaling of the citizen observatories to an early initial baseline.
- Validation of the Ground Truth. 2.0 approach, based on validation of the six citizen observatories in the Demo Cases.
Together, the combination of validation and impact assessment provide a comprehensive feedback
tool to inform improvements to the final citizen observatories and innovate specific aspects of the
Ground Truth 2.0 approach.
The methodology and procedures to be employed iteratively throughout the project life time and beyond were elaborated in Ground Truth 2.0 Deliverable D1.10 Methodology for Validation and Impact Assessment. Deliverable D1.11 presented the baseline situation for the impact assessment.
This deliverable presents the final impact assessment in the six Ground Truth 2.0 Demonstration Cases at the end of the life time of the Ground Truth 2.0 project, their validation as well as the overall validation of the Ground Truth 2.0 approach. The empirical research is based on the methodology reported in D1.10 and the results are compared to the findings of the baseline situation that was reported in D1.11.
