Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation

Room H1A, 07/11/2013 (09:50-10:35)

The challenge is to harness the collaborative power of ICT networks (networks of people, of knowledge, of sensors) to create collective and individual awareness about the multiple sustainability threats which our society is facing nowadays at social, environmental and political levels. The resulting collective intelligence will lead to better informed decision-making processes and empower citizens, through participation and interaction, to adopt more sustainable individual and collective behaviours and lifestyles.

The challenge includes the deployment at larger scales of digital social platforms for multi-disciplinary groups developing innovative solutions to societal challenges.

This session will present the rationale for this initiative, give an overview of the currently running projects, and present and discuss in detail the content of the forthcoming call for proposals (ICT10)

A good session in terms of content, perspectives and attendance. Many attendees not familiar with EU-funded research (developers, civil society, etc.) asking publicly how to be involved in what seems to them a "closed circle". We need them in CAPS ! We have to make efforts to facilitate their first contact with Horizon 2020 WP, calls, consortia, proposals, rules, etc.
