ChiC was presented at the ICT Day 2018 in Vienna, at the “Tech for everyone, by everyone: citizen-centred digital innovation for good” networking session organized on 6th of December 2018.
The networking session was the opportunity to give voice to a range of projects that are using citizen-centered digital innovation to tackle social challenges, including projects funded under H2020’s Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability (CAPS) programme and the Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative. The agenda of the session, coordinated by ChiC in cooperation with DSISCALE included the presentation of several CAPS projects: DECODE, Families Share, MAZI, Saving Food, COMRADES and PROFIT.
ChiC presented its results, with a focus on the DSI Manifesto and the related policy activities focusing on future steps, actions and policy recommendations needed to be addressed within the next 10 years within the European Next Generation Internet scene. ChiC, a coordination and support action had the chance to display how it handled the promotion and dissemination of the CAPS projects in the last couple of years, through several events, such the two editions of the DSI Fair, the Connected Technologies for Social Good Magazine, the projects online technological outputs and the best practices analysis. All efforts aimed at maximizing the impact of an amazing cluster of over 40 projects focused on developing human-centered digital innovation, and building new relationships with people with common interests across Europe.
CAPSSI projects were also present in the exhibition area of the ICT 2018. DECODE and COMRADES had a stand showcasing videos and computer visualisations. There was great interest in the project and hundreds of visitors came to find out more from project members on the stand.
