The software is evaluated both through comparison with the functional requirements listed and described in Deliverable D8.2, and through various external user testing activities.
As well as evaluation of the DSS itself, this document includes evaluation of other areas of the ePolicy project including the eParticipation process that was used to support and facilitate stakeholder consultation and collaboration. Additionally, this document evaluates the plans and activities that have so far been developed or undertaken regarding the exploitation of the results of the project.
