Civil servants in focus: HI Iberia runs focus groups for the SIMPATICO project

Last week HI Iberia travelled to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia to perform a series of focus groups with 18 civil servants from Xunta de Galicia who collaborate in project SIMPATICO.The purpose was to evaluate the acceptance and usefulness of the module e-Service Monitor which HI Iberia has co-designed with Xunta over the past year to evaluate the data collected by the SIMPATICO services and the results generated.
The results were promising and show that there is much that they can extract from the data that is processed by the SIMPATICO modules. It was also clear that the participatory design methodology that we followed for the production of the software is very beneficial and deserves much attention in the coming months of SIMPATICO and other projects.

The second part was more centred on co-design, thus, a use case was presented where the initial vision of WellCo was presented as well as the initial requirements for the platform and the work that has still to be done. The day ended with 2 parallel sessions where, end-user organizations and technical partners, respectively discussed aspects regarding the methodology for trials and the implementation of the platform.

The second day was more technical. During it, the leaders of the monitoring modules and those for sentiment analysis, proposed different initiatives where they explained how they envisaged their modules as well as the work they had performed so far. The meeting ended with a review of the aspects of dissemination and exploitation of the project as well as the policies for open data management.

There was a general feeling of satisfaction after the end of the meeting, since several agreements and important decisions were taken, and this, will allow partners to keep effectively working in the coming 6 months.
