This policy workshop on Digital Social Innovation for Europe brings together innovators throughout Europe and leaders from CAPS projects with European Commission Policy officials to get in touch, get inspired and to network.

Digital Social Innovation has been put on the map through the focus on Collective Awareness Programs. Today we are hosting a policy workshop concerning Digital Social Innovation for Europe. We bring together innovators throughout Europe and leaders from CAPS projects with European Commission Policy officials to get in touch, get inspired and connect your networks. By learning from each other, the community of digital social innovation will be able to grow further and stronger. Next to growing communities and connecting networks, this workshop will bring you several clear examples of Digital Social Innovation in Europe, and teach you best practices and hands-on tips and tricks for DSI.
