The ultimate objectives of TRIGGER are to provide EU institutions with knowledge and tools to enhance their actorness, effectiveness and influence in global governance; and to develop new ways to harness the potential of public engagement and participatory foresight in complex governance decisions, thereby also tackling emerging trends such as nationalism, regionalism and protectionism. These overall objectives are designed to be measurable, realistic and achievable within the 36-month duration of the project. The TRIGGER consortium is composed of 14 partners, including four partners from non-EU countries.

*This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 822735.
