The Odysseus System Online Survey
We would like to gather the views from experts in urban and building energy efficiency, ICT software development, the utility service sector, city and facilities management, urban design and planning.
Your views and feedback are important to us so we can validate the initial requirements capture by the cities of Rome and Manchester (in the Odysseus Project) and ensure that they are applicable to urban areas across Europe. This survey should take 15 mins maximum. Your responses will be anonymous and we can supply the results on request. The survey is open until the first week in February. Thank you for your replies. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Odysseus
