On July 1 and 2, 2014 MyAccessible.EU will take part in CAPS2014, the first international event on collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation (CAPS). This event, organized under the auspices of the European Commission in Brussels, is open to anyone – whether they are already involved in a CAPS project or whether they are newcomers, interested in knowing more about the possibilities provided by these platforms.
The occasion will provide existing projects and initiatives with an opportunity to discuss their impact, increase their visibility, develop synergies and roadmaps, and to liaise with any interested stakeholders. Taking part in the conference will be civil society organisations, NGOs, local communities, students and hackers, academic and industrial institutions, policy makers, national agencies and members of the European Parliament.
Two dynamic days planned
July 1 promises to be a dynamic day of interesting talks, unconferences, workshops, hands-on sessions and networking opportunities at the venue known as “The Egg“.
The second day of the event is to be carried out in a conference format and will be held at the European Commission. Participants will be presented with an overview of collective awareness platforms that are already up and running. A session with detailed information on the upcoming call for proposals for new CAPS projects will be offered, giving newcomers the opportunity to become involved in new collective awareness platforms.
The event website provides full details on the two day agenda and gives you the opportunity to register online.
