Title: Discover CAPS2014 programme and meet some of the EINS partners

EINS partners will be largely represented on the occasion of CAPS2014 (the first international event on collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation (CAPS) to be held in Brussels on July 1-2 this year. A workshop will bring together EINS partners and other prominent researchers to discuss the Networked Individualism concept. This co-located event will be about the societal shift from the traditional closely-knit groups of families, neighbourhoods, or work groups towards loosely bound, sparsely knit, and fragmentary social networks.

Come and interact with researchers from various disciplines and take advantage of the research and innovation potential of the concept of Networked Individualism.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Brussels! For registration, click here
