Fundación Cibervoluntarios will represent Socratic Consortium next june the 29th, at the DSI4EU, tu support the Collective Awareness Platforms H2020 (CAPS) program. DSI4EU is a support action in the H2020 Collective Awareness Platforms program. DSI4EU will support, grow and scale the current Digital Social Innovation network of projects and organisations, bringing together social entrepreneurs, hackers, communities and academics working on key DSI fields such as the makers movement, the collaborative economy, open democracy and digital rights. It will foster digital innovations for the social good, helping communities share data, collaborate to solve societal problems and scale their initiatives focusing on open and distributed technologies and new sustainable business models.
Finally, it will represent the building blocks for a new participatory innovation model for Europe, a more decentralised web and an inclusive and sustainable society, including a radical approach to scaling, extending and connecting the DSI network in Europe.
Next to growing communities and connecting networks, this workshop will bring you some clear examples of Digital Social Innovation in Europe and teach you best practices and hands-on tips and tricks for DSI. Some of the confirmed speakers:
