The Event

This information day is organised by Luce Jacovella, Queen Mary, University of London with the European Commission. The event will launch of the work programme for 'Collective Awareness Platforms' within the next ICT call 10.

Collective Awareness Platforms for Social Innovation and Sustainable Social Changes (CAPS) are ICT systems leveraging the emerging 'network effect' by combining open online social media, distributed knowledge creation and data from real environments (Internet of Things), in order to create new forms of social innovation. They are expected to support environmentally aware, grassroots processes and practices to share knowledge, to achieve changes in lifestyle, production and consumption patterns, and to set up more participatory democratic processes.


Programme

The day will be made up of a brief presentation of the work programme for the next call 10 by the European Commission, followed by question and answers and an ideas workshop in the afternoon.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception in the School of Law foyer and all attednees are welcome to stay and discuss the information day.

All interested parties are welcome to attend. For further information please contact Luce Jacovella by email on l.jacovella@qmul.ac.uk.
