PoliVisu is a new Research and Innovation project specifically designed to utilise stakeholder knowledge by creating a more collaborative policy making process. By harnessing visualisation technologies, PoliVisu begins to close data gaps that have long impeded effective policymaking. As problems are illuminated, policy-making can become more targeted, with attention appropriately and efficiently directed; more tailored, so that responses fit divergent needs; more nimble, able to adjust quickly to changing circumstances; and more experimental, with real-time testing of how problems respond to different strategies. This paper outlines the theory behind the design of PoliVisu and the expected impact of this new policy modelling approach.
