CONSENSUS Press Release Issue 3 now available online!

We are proud to announce the publishing of CONSENSUS Press Release Issue 3. Thirty months ago, CONSENSUS envisioned to simplify, identify and visualize the consequences of decisions in the policy making process. At the core of the project was the CONSENSUS policy model, which decomposes policies in a number of -often conflicting- objectives. Using the model in combination to visualizations and data analysis, allowed the exploration of the design and objective space.. Now, thirty months later we can say that we have realized our vision.
