The Second CAPS Community Workshop will be co-located with the MAZI Summer School 10-14 July 2017, Tsalapata Building in Volos, Greece.
The main goal of the one day CAPS community workshop, to be held on 12th July, is to gather all organisations actively engaged in design, deployment and promotion of technologies for good, which embraces a number of initiatives within the broader Digital Social Innovation (DSI) ecosystem, in order to debate progress, priorities, and impact for the society.
Major attention will be given to debate about user engagement and behavioural changes, while learning about the main outcomes and results of the ongoing CAPS projects. Moreover, the workshop will be one major milestone towards the finalisation of the DSI Manifesto.
The venue is Tsalapata Building, an old brick factory that has been renovated and now hosts a museum. It is located in the city of Volos and is about 10 minutes walking distance from the heart of the city.
Different CAPS projects are organising their hand-on tutorial/ workshops based on their work and results. The different projects are expected to bring 3-5 researchers (and PhD students) to participate to the workshops and debates. The aim is to join forces and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and results from project to project and expand the engagement of new communities and users in view of promoting the CAPS beyond the EC borders. In parallel, the European Commission is organizing and chairing the first period reviews of various CAPS projects that started 1st January 2016. A panel of independent experts will assess each project in turn.”
