Abstract:Stakeholder participation plays an important part in civil engineering projects. With the rise of technology and the availability of the internet, the ways to involve stakeholders are increasing. This development facilitates the growth of eParticipation and there is an increasing interest in eParticipation in the Dutch civil engineering field. The usefulness of eParticipation relative to traditional stakeholder participation is becoming more generally known, but how to effectively use the different tools is still unclear. Therefore, there is a need for further knowledge on how to use eParticipation tools and in which contexts. This research aims to develop a decision support tool to be used by stakeholder managers for strategical selection of eParticipation tools in projects with a large spatial impact. In order to do so, a research following the design science methodology is executed. The three phases included in this research are the problem investigation phase, the design phase and the validation phase. This research focusses on the stakeholder participation process in MIRT-projects. MIRT-projects are complex and long-term governmental projects in The Netherlands, which need an intensive and prolonged participation process.
