Taking place in the framework of the Net Futures 2015 Conference, the CAPS consultation meeting will allow you to meet the current projects, hear about their latest achievements and have your say on future Horizon 2020 work programmes in the area of Collective Awareness Platforms.

Come and join us for the CAPS consultation meeting on 25 March 2015 in Brussels. You will first hear about the latest achievements of the current CAPS projects. Then, after a presentation of the European Commission's plans for CAPS in the 2016-2017 Work Programme, you have the chance to share your ideas on this and provide the Commission's representatives with direct feedback. We are happy to get your input, especially regarding the new topic of distributed architectures for decentralised data management.
Please register here, the registration code is NFCAPS2015. Please note that with your ticket you will also be able to visit the Net Futures 2015 conference. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
