Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation - Information Day
2 July 2012, London, United Kingdom
Collective Awareness Platforms for Social Innovation and Sustainable Social Changes (CAPS) are ICT systems that use 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. This information day aims to generate ideas to solve societal problems using collective intelligence, knowledge and insight. Ideas could then be developed into proposals for the forthcoming ICT Call 10.
