Title CAPS2020
Description Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation (CAPS) are ICT systems leveraging the emerging “network effect” by combining open online social media, distributed knowledge creation and data from real environments (“Internet of Things”) in order to create awareness of problems and possible solutions requesting collective efforts, enabling new forms of social innovation. Over the period 2013-2015 the European Commission will support a number of research projects, coordination actions and studies concerning CAPS.

CAPS2020 is a project supported by the European Commission in this context of emergence and diversity of CAPS. In order to reach a strong momentum that Horizon 2020 will amplify, it is important that an annual international conference focusing on CAPS can be organised, providing all CAPS projects with an opportunity to increase their visibility and impact in Europe and beyond, and to liaise with other interested stakeholders, including organisations developing similar projects in other regions of the world.

These annual events will be key milestones in the present CAPS booming period, allowing to address issues of common interest, to develop synergies between initiatives, and to discuss the CAPS research roadmap for Horizon 2020.

The organization of these annual events is the main objective of the CAPS2020 project.
