GSS Research Challenge in the CROSSOVER Roadmap

Dear all the consortium of the CROSSOVER project is currently engaged in drafting a research roadmap on ICT Tools for Governance and Policy Modelling. The roadmap is enriched with cases and applications of ICT tools, and is available online in a commentable format at As a consortium we decided to introduce a research challenge in Global Systems Science, thereby I would be glad if there could be an interaction on your side.
By using the roadmap there would be the possibility to give further visibility to GSS, as it is regularly presented and discussed in online and offline events, such as the next International Conference on Policy Making 2.0 taking place in Dublin next June in the Digital Agenda week
