10:15 - Empowering Game-Changer Communities in Horizon 2020

Informal occasions, decentralised organisations, socially-engaged actors, better-than-professional amateurs… This is where innovation is also made today, outside of traditional research centres, businesses and public organisations. The importance of integrating new actors and hybrid models and learning from them is widely acknowledged across Horizon 2020 calls as engine for European competitiveness and social innovation. Needless to say, in the CAPS context this is even more important.

How can we rethink the actual framework in order to allow the seamless participation of new stakeholders to all stages of the innovation value chain? How can their participation to public programs be sustainable? A roundtable involving key EU and extra-EU experiences and proposals from bottom-up innovation areas will officially open CAPS2015 with a critical reflection about the role H2020 can play in empowering and scaling innovative communities and stakeholders.

Introductory Address:

Chair: Nicole Dewandre - Advisor for Societal Issues to the Director General, Directorate General for Communications, Networks, Content and Technologies (DG CONNECT)

MAIN STAGE (14:00 – 18:00)

14:00 - The Value of (Digital) Social Innovation: How to Decribe It and How to Support Its Growth

Format: Panel

(Digital) Social Innovation is a growing phenomenon all around Europe and initiatives are multiplying fast: governments and institutions are investing in the field in order to stimulate the growth of new solutions for pressing social needs. Bottom up organisations, NGOs, social enterprises, universities and research centers but also SMEs and large enterprises are producing new ideas and projects approaching many different topics such as global warming, climate change, waste management, unemployment, social exclusion, inequalities, etc. But how can we describe the effects of such initiatives?

Chair: Andrea Nicolai - President, T6 Ecosystems

16:15 - Perspectives on Networked Social Responsibility: Responsible Research and Innovation

Format: Talk

The RRI-ICT Forum project, aims at analysing, supporting and promoting the contribution of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to, and the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) approach in ICT research and innovation under H2020.

The contribution of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to a RRI approach in ICT is logically critical since SSH can precisely monitor economic, legal, and social issues related to technological developments and update the concepts, meanings, and expectations arising from the deployment of ICT.

The need for an RRI approach had been identified by European Commission’s DG Research & Innovation in the early 00’s, through its “Science and Society Action Plan” encouraging a better connection between science and European citizens. Today, RRI has become a cross-cutting issue in the EU Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation covering the period 2014-2020.

  • Anthony Dupont – Societal Challenges Unit Manager, Sigma Orionis

16:30 - P2Pvalue Directory: Using a Unique Open Resource for Research and Networking

The P2P Value directory is an open mapping tool and the largest collaborative dataset of Commons-Based Peer Production communities. Featuring more than 300 cases it is a unique open resource for research and networking. The data is freely available in open formats.

Commons-Based Peer Production is an emerging and innovative production model in which the creative energy of large numbers of citizens is coordinated, usually through a digital platform, outside of the parameters of the traditionally hierarchical and mercantil organisation resulting in the public provision of commons resources.

P2Pvalue is Investigating the conditions which favour collaborative creation and the logic of value of these emerging forms. The research results will be used to develop a digital platform based on decentralized architecture and the design of public policies that promote the commons.

Discover the Directory and how to use it together with:

NETWORKING APERITIVO (18:00 – 19:00)

PARALLEL SESSIONS (14:00 – 18:00)

14:00 - European Union Policy Seminar on the Usage of Data for Driving Social Entrepreneurship

When: 14:00 – 17:10

Where: Basement

Organiser: the Web-COSI project

Europe2020 strategy is pushing to create a favorable climate for social enterprises recognized as key stakeholders in the social economy and innovation. Social enterprises seek to serve the community’s interest (social, societal, environmental objectives) rather than profit maximization. They often have an innovative nature, through the goods or services they offer, and through the organization or production methods they resort to. As many affect some of society’s most fragile members (socially excluded persons), they contribute to social cohesion, employment and the reduction of inequalities.

Two cornerstones of social entrepreneurship are: i) the ever-increasing need for social services, for example in the health and nursing sectors — due not least to the demographic changes arising as a consequence of an increasingly ageing society; ii) the potential of social ventures to increase global competitiveness with new jobs, which are mainly to be found in the ‘green’ and ‘white’ economy. The seminar – organized within the activities of the EU FP7 Web-COSI project – aims to explore the policy implications that have arisen thus far in the context of data usage for driving social entrepreneurship. Data needs for social entrepreneurs can be considered in different perspectives: i) data on the citizens’ problems and needs to drive the start of the social venture; ii) data to foster the venture on-going; iii) data to evaluate and measure the impact of social ventures; iv) data to measure the overall phenomenon of social entrepreneurship. Web2.0 offers great potential to collect and use data among stakeholders and in giving individuals a voice. Technology lowers the cost of and barriers to listening to individuals and disadvantaged communities. It assists responding to their needs, and aggregating large amounts of data to measure overall effectiveness and shape policy interventions. The seminar aims at exploring digital initiatives set up to foster the interaction between citizens and social entrepreneurs. It will draw from work already undertaken by the Web-COSI project, including the outcomes of a Workshop in London, a Report and mapping exercise, an online survey and preparations being made for a series of focus groups.

14:00 - unSmarting the City: Generating Location-Based Collective Awareness with DIY Networking

When: 14:00 – 18:00

Where: Satellite 2 + Brussels streets

Organiser: NetHood and UnMonastery

‘unSmarting the City’ is a workshop organized in collaboration between NetHood (Panayotis Antoniadis, Ileana Apostol) and UnMonastery (Katalin Hausel, Jeff Andreoni) in order to explore the advantages of offline networks and smart city concepts for the design of technology that can serve face-to-face meetings and local communities. We will first provide a short introduction to three important concepts that will help us guide the workshop participants through a collaborative process of hybrid space design: Do-It-Yourself networking, field research methodologies, and the role of the stranger. Then we will go out to the streets to explore the surroundings of the conference’s venue to analyze the spatial and social aspects of different places, and to identify locations that are candidates for hybrid urban interventions. After our collective walk, we will gather in a public space to think together about possible applications and possible processes to design them, including software, hardware, surrounding artifacts and performance. We will focus on ways to take advantage of the special characteristics of DIY networking — ownership, de facto physical proximity, anonymity, and inclusive access — to facilitate contact between strangers, in this specific part of the city. The next day, July 8th, we will join the “From the IoT to the IoC” workshop, and afterwards we will develop all together a few prototypes of selected applications. Finally, we will perform a short-term urban intervention in a selected location in the city, and close this way the whole design circle (from field research to intervention).

Agenda
14:00 – 15:00 Introduction to the main concepts
DIY networking and offline networks (Panayotis Antoniadis)
Hybrid space design and field research methodologies (Ileana Apostol)
Urban interventions and the role of the stranger (Katalin Hausel, Jeff Andreoni)

15:00 – 15:30 Self-introductions by the participants

15:30 – 17:00 Field research in groups in the surrounding area

17:00 – 18:00 Reporting from the field research and brainstorming on applications and interventions

14:00 - Open Data and Social, Innovation Partnerships and innovation community Support and Management

When: 14:00 – 15:30

Where: Bar

Organiser: the SciCafé 2.0 project

This workshop is focused on dealing with the challenges of innovation community building, supporting and sustaining – ensuring the sustainability and scaffolding of community engagement. A panel comprising the members of the SciCafe Consortium will present the management challenges relating to open data and social innovation partnerships in the context of Social innovation eco-systems governance, fostering crowd-sourced innovation and support the mainstreaming of the 3rd sector innovation eco-systems – crowd-funding beyond community currencies

This will explore the related aspects such as invitational environments to motivate objective citizenship and collective-deliberative democracy, enhancing the quality of the user experience in x-cafés in the context of specific social constructs, managing innovation communities beyond the digital social innovation platform, studying the socio-psycho-cognitive pull-push in peer production, challenging socially constructed “cool” irresponsibility.

15:45 - Building Networks for Good

When: 15:45 – 17:15

Where: Satellite 1

Organisers: Lee-Sean Huang (Purpose)

What happens when people come together to take collective action without needing traditional organisational and institutional structures? What tools and strategies do we need for these “Networks for Good” to thrive? In this workshop, designer, storyteller, and community-builder Lee-Sean Huang (Purpose) will explore these questions by drawing from his own experiences building international networks like UX for Good, The Awesome Foundation, and Wisdom Hackers.

15:45 - Opening Policy making in the EU

When: 15:45 – 17:15

Where: Satellite 2

Organiser: Open EU and the Democratic Society

Participation makes no difference if no-one is listening. In this workshop we will explore how the European policy process can be opened up to digital participation and a wider range of voices. We will hear about the best examples of open policy from the EU and beyond,  and develop some practical ideas to make the processes and attitudes of government ready for digital participation and citizen engagement.

17:15 - Collective Intelligence tools: CATALYST Demo Session

When: 17:15 – 18:00

Where: Bar

Organiser: the CATALYST project

Participants will be able to get a demonstration of the whole ecosystem of tools developed within CATALYST through the “user journey” defined within the project. It is a new inclusive way to discover how the use of the tools can be articulated to improve the quality and the density of online debates and deliberations.

17:15 - Forum of Ideas

When: 17:15 – 19:00

Where: Basement

How about taking an active part to the event? Do you have the spirit of a speaker? The Forum of Ideas is an open space where you can share experiences, best practices and research results. It’s CAPS2015 jam session, open to and driven by the attendees.

In order to keep the CAPS2014 bar camp tradition alive, Maria Perulero (Goteo) will open the dances by sharing some new exciting developments occurred since last year and then leave the floor to the second best classified participants to CAPS2015 Open-Call.

Corporate presentations are banned: make sure you present an idea, because that’s the best way to promote what you do.

Registrations will be opened directly at La Tricoterie on a first arrived first served basis.

All day - Engaging Encounters: Sketching Futures Together

When: in loop

Where: Bar

Organiser: Engaging Encounters: sketching futures together is a project by Caroline Hummels.

“During a hands-on encounter, we envision together what the future can be at the cross-section of our expertise. The overall project will address various questions of which one or more are explored. Overall, I’m intrigued to hear what kind of world the inspirator foresees or prefers to create tomorrow and in a few decades. How can people learn from each other and prefer to work together? What can be the role of the inspirator’s discipline as well as other disciplines? How do we boost the potential and passion of every human being? How will technology influence our society? What are the ethical implications of our innovations? And what can design offer in the process of creating our future together?

By sketching this future together and creating a joined vision, I aim at bridging different worlds and perspectives, in action. Through this encounter, I like to discuss my perspective on the world through embodied perpection-inspired designs from our DQI group (dep. of Industrial Design, TU Eindhoven) and other design work; I like to inspire the inspirators by revealing what design could bring. Vice-versa, I like to be inspired by them; their dreams, ideals, passion and experience. Moreover, I like to introduce them to the ideas and vision of the other inspirators. This way I hope all participants get new insights and can grow, which might even create potential ground for further collaboration to realize our ideals and envisioned future. Finally, all encounters are recorded on video, audio and in a database with all materials used including time-marked highlights, and documented in a blog, a book and a movie, thus hoping to inspire others in their work and perspective on the world”

PARALLEL SESSIONS (10:00 – 16:00)

10:00 - From the IoT to the IoC: From the Internet of Things to the Internet of Communities / unSmarting the city

When: 10:00 – 16:00

Where: Satellite 2 & Brussels streets

Organiser: Rob van Kranenbourg (IoT Council) with the participation of NetHood and unMonastery

We are makers of building blocks for systems of decision-making. What does collective awareness of this Digital Transition, fueled by Internet of Things, mean? How can we ensure that this future full of sensors will not only be in the hands of commercial companies wanting just to make money and engineers who are only able to out-optimize in their narrow reductions of the real? One possible trajectory is to take over the memes and terminology in order to envisage futures where sensors and monitoring are harnessed in a scale that can be managed on the ground by people just living their everyday life; the neighborhood. Can we rethink the smart city as an internet of communities where local platforms gather all public and private data streams in a local decentralized cloud and play back scenarios to people on food, sharing cars, local work, tools and services? How can we bring back the technology to serve real simple and mundane needs of people and their immediate allies: animals, plants and the environment as a whole?

Agenda:

10:00-10:30 Rob van Kranenburg (IoT Council): Co-creation workshops in SocioTal.eu / going from ‘smart city’ to ‘internet of neighborhoods’.

Through horizontally scaling grass roots efforts along with establishing social standards for governments and companies to allow cooperation, Nold and Kranenberg argue for transforming the Internet of Things into an Internet of People.

http://www.situatedtechnologies.net/?q=node/108

10:30-11:00 Eric Hendriks or/and Hanneke van Stokkom (mijnbuurtje.nl): Is it possible to add #IoT like apps and services to a socially cohesion driven neighborhood web platform?

11:00-12:00 Rob van Kranenburg moderates a quick and dirty workshop.

The format aims to quickly identify the dilemma, the stakeholders, the incentives for the stakeholders to participate in possible solutions to the dilemma you want to propose, the evidence you have prepared and researched to underly your  suggestion that there is a dilemma in the first place and that this dilemma is the most urgent one and most important ‘tools for evidence'; that is tools that allow the stakeholders to construct evidentiary rationales for themselves. In short if you do not give people in current times tools (ranging from apps, to experiences in installations, software..) to construct their own evidence, you will have a very difficult time in trying to underline the importance of your dilemma. 

12:00- 16:00 Parallel hands-on workshops for implementation of a few of the ideas developed during the “unsmarting the city” and “From the IoT to the IoC” workshops.

16:00-18:00 An urban intervention at a selected location in the venue’s surrounding area.

About

Why ‘CAPS’ are so important?

CAPS can be described as non-commercial, open Internet platforms, connecting citizens to each other (and to the “Internet of Things” whenever necessary) and providing them with a more effective way to:

  • Spontaneously adopt more sustainable behaviours and lifestyles, based on better information (extended awareness);
  • Contribute to a low-carbon economy, for instance by lending, exchanging and reusing goods at scale, across geographic boundaries (collaborative consumption);
  • Get facts/evidence from citizens for better decision making, at personal or institutional levels (e.g. crowdmapping);
  • Develop alternative collaborative approaches to problem solving (crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, participatory design, collective intelligence, collective decisions);
  • Actively engage, innovate and act, individually or collectively, towards societally, environmentally and economically sustainable approaches and solutions to tackle societal challenges: growth and employment, environment, climate change, health and education, inclusive societies, wellbeing, etc.

Who is behind CAPS2015?

CAPS2015 is organized under the aegis of the European Commission through the CAPS2020 project, coordinated by Sigma Orionis. It is one of the CAPS projects selected at FP7 Call 10. The main CAPS2020 objective is the organization of annual CAPS international conferences.

Why a CAPS2015 international event?

An entire ecosystem of initiatives innovates the European and worldwide societies through a plurality of voices and approaches (social entrepreneurship, crowdfunding, sharing economy, P2P, sustainable consumption, just to mention a few). What they all have in common is the use of Internet and the Internet of Things as a lever to scale, engage, ideate, debate, impact and overall tackle societal challenges.

A first batch of CAPS (Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation) projects has been launched with the support of the European Commission in 2013 (FP7 Call 10). A second Call is open within the Horizon 2020 EU research programme.

This international annual event – launched in 2014 in continuity with the “1st Dialogue on platforms for collective awareness and action” held at the European Commission in September 2011 – provides existing projects and initiatives with an opportunity to discuss their impact, increase their visibility, develop synergies and roadmaps, and liaise with any interested stakeholders: civil society organisations, NGOs, local communities, students and hackers, academic and industrial institutions, policy makers, national agencies, new Members of the European Parliament.

Why ‘Networked Social Responsibility’?

The CAPS acronym covers a wide range of approaches, activities and paradigms, impossible to pull together without rough simplifications. Nonetheless, we believe they all have in common a social responsibility dimension, that we define as caring for the common good and fostering societal changes as immediate objective or direct consequence of one’s work or engagement. Our part in this big picture is facilitating the encounter, creative clash and collaboration of the widest number of individuals, initiatives, projects and organisations sharing this commitment.
