News & Success Stories

The European digital portal, developed in partnership with Tremend, part of Publicis Sapient Group, empowers European citizens to “make their voices heard”.

In just 3 months since its official release, the “Conference on the Future of Europe” platform reached almost 20,000 users, who are actively debating topics with a great impact on EU policies. Over 5,300 ideas on important issues such as the environment, justice, or security, have been shared through the platform, gathering more than 10,000 comments from its registered users, and almost 30,000 endorsements.

The launch of the “Conference on the Future of Europe” platform in April marked an important step made by the European Parliament and the European Commission towards reinforcing democracy through technology. The platform promotes digitally-enabled civic engagement, empowering European citizens to “make their voices heard”, interact with each other, and work together in order to shape the future of Europe.

The Conference promotes equality and aims to find solutions to arising issues that might appear in the European space through an electronic democratic and transparent process. Users can create and attend events, and share their ideas in a secure environment on topics such as health, climate change, European policies, economy, social justice, rule of law, migration, or youth and sport.

Tremend was honored to have contributed to the release of this new multilingual digital platform, as the main technology partner of Decidim, an award-winning innovative open-source software. From graphics to development, DevOps, security, anti-spam solutions, and deployment on AWS, Tremend’s software engineering team carefully followed the business requirements of the European authorities, infusing its advanced technical expertise during all the delivery stages.
