The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

The platform fteval was founded in 1996 with the aim to contribute to more evidence in technology policy. The overall aim is to achieve “a better common understanding between administrators, funders and evaluators." This included the discussion and development of best practices and a discussion of methods, an exchange of experience with other European countries on expert level as well as the discussion on the importance of standards of the European Union for Austria.In order to further support the evaluation culture in Austria and to inform about new developments in the RTI system, which are relevant for evaluation, the platform has developed a broad portfolio of activities and support offers. Within the framework of regular events - such as the country series organised in cooperation with the BMWFW and the WWTF - national and international experts in the area of RTI policy and evaluation are invited for an exchange of ideas. With irregular intervals, international conferences are held on the evaluation of RTI policies, which support an exchange between science and practice. The latest one was the Open Evaluation Conference, for which we were able to win 60 presenters and 250 participants from all five continents. The ‘fteval inside: fteval insight’ event series is a particularity within the portfolio, as member organizations invite each other to present their activities with a self-selected thematic focus and discuss them in an informal framework. This is the Platform’s only internal event format.The Platform’s most long-standing product is the fteval Journal for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation, which arose from the earlier so-called "Newsletter". The journal contains both practical and academic contributions to the topic of RTI policy evaluation and contributes to supporting and safeguarding this discourse across the various stakeholder groups. In more than 40 editions of the journal more than 200 articles were published, predominantly in English. Thematic special editions as well as open editions provide a broad thematic framework.The fteval standards of evaluation in research and technology policy form an important building block for the further development of the evaluation culture. These serve to provide a reference framework for the evaluators, the commissioning bodies and those who are evaluated. The standards aim also to achieve a higher degree of commitment and security for all stakeholders. The standards were developed by the member organisations in a joint process, which started with the institutionalisation of fteval in 2002. The current version of the standards is from 2012. They have been revised in a collaborative process.A further central activity of the platform is the collection and publication of the Austrian evaluation reports in a specially designed repository. The availability of some 300 evaluation reports, studies and strategic documents on the website of the platform contributes to the transparency and visibility of the activities in this policy area. In addition, the platform regularly organises trainings, is available for specific consultation and participates in national and international exchange of knowledge through participation in relevant events of other organisations.
