The City of Barcelona will host a DSI event to launch the local chapter of the network DSI4BCN, with the support of the City Hall. The purpose of this event is to bring together DSI stakeholders and practitioners in Barcelona and beyond, to present the DSI4BCN Challenges & Prize Platform Prize that will be presented together with the next EU CAPS call. The city of Barcelona is deeply immersed in an exciting digital social innovation process, and is launching a new round of funding to support, grow and scale an ecosystem of projects and organisations, bringing together social entrepreneurs, hackers, communities and academics working on key DSI fields such as the makers movement, the collaborative economy, open democracy and digital rights.
DSI4BCN will foster digital innovations for the social good, helping communities share data, collaborate to solve societal problems and scale their initiatives focusing on open and distributed technologies that preserve people’s privacy and new sustainable business models.
