"Collective Awareness Platforms" (CAPS) are defined as ICT systems leveraging the network effect for gathering and making use of open data, by combining social media, distributed knowledge creation and Internet of Things. They are expected to support environmentally aware, grassroots processes and practices to share knowledge, to achieve changes in lifestyles, production and consumption patterns, and to set up more participatory democratic processes. Their ultimate goal is fostering a more sustainable future based on a low-carbon, beyond GDP economy, and a resilient, cooperative democratic community.
This call is open to initiatives of any size, including pilots, coordination actions and a "seed money" IP redistributing its money to small actors through open calls.
Some key multidisciplinary topics (such as reputation, network neutrality, identity, crowdsourcing, citizen involvement in content generation, new collective economic models, privacy by design, behavioural and societal changes) are common to the multidisciplinary call for experimentally driven research in Internet Science topics which is open in area 1.7b.
