(English) CAPS Community Meeting and Workshop – 18 May 2016 – Berlin

This event aims at bringing together old and new CAPS projects, discussing ideas for the next workprogramme, defining clusters of projects, and ultimately establishing a working community of innovation entities that will actively cooperate with the EC on Digital Social Innovation over the coming years.

The venue is chosen because of the vibrant community of social innovators present in Berlin and the date is just before the European Citizen Science conference http://www.ecsa2016.eu/ , which includes a panel on the importance of citizen engagement and collective intelligence seen from the bottom-up CAPS perspective of ‘awareness, data, actionable change and innovation’.

The community meeting is mainly for the 36 CAPS projects to meet each other and their project officers, but it is also open to any external participant interesting in gathering knowledge about the current developments and interacting first-hand the current CAPS activities, from peer to peer.

This is an event organised by the European Commission. Participation is free of monetary charge – but you need to bring ideas.
