In HARMONIA, the 4 pilot cities participated in a process of learning and capacity building. The project team developed a local-level, multi-faceted consultation with the city authorities.
Each Pilot City organised their workshops with the support of the Harmonia partner URBASOFIA that developed a guidebook defining a strategy (method practices and agenda) to organise the activities at the local level for 3 types of groups (children, students, and adults). The communication partner EARSC also supported the pilot cities in the organisation of their local events guiding partners in the presentation of Harmonia.
Citizens are the end users of HARMONIA and considered a top priority in the development of the IRAP platform. The project includes citizens-based data and the point of view of local populations by making use of the community-based environmental monitoring and information tool, “Citizens as observatories”. HARMONIA not only offers tools for scientific communities, but also to a whole range of stakeholders including industry and commercial actors. Companies and research bodies with a clear interest in a specific intelligent service (e.g. on demand forecasts), information stream (e.g. historical analysis) and/or data (e.g. weather data) are encouraged to share their requirements on what they would like to see on the platform.
