The advent of the Web 2.0 enabled the growth of user-generated content, virtual communities and new forms of collaboration over the internet. Since then, multiple platforms, such as the CAPS platforms, have emerged tapping into collective knowledge for fostering awareness, collaboration and innovation.
This workshop aims to collect the lessons learned from different platforms and settings, and understand the requirements and challenges for building and using digital platforms to effectively engage broad participation in the social innovation process. The workshop offers a forum to reflect on the result of experiments, pilots and tests of such platforms in order to pave the way forward for digital social innovation in the Next Generation Internet. Our expected output is a concrete set of findings, important research questions and digital social innovation opportunities.
