Assessment and evaluation
Achieving impact is a central objective of MONICA. With an estimated figure of 100,000+ individuals to be using MONICA innovations, it is expected that the MONICA demonstrations will have a great impact on citizens, the event industries, IoT business partners and public services, in terms of an observable and measurable change from social, economic, technological and environmental perspectives.
To evaluate, measure and value the impact, MONICA will use a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods, applied and refined throughout the project lifetime and involving all stakeholders. The starting point is the planned events for which MONICA technology is to be used, commencing in Spring 2018.
