OPEN CALL FOR COLLABORATION

We warmly congratulate the winners and thank them for their implication in the testing of CATALYST tools: Ashoka, Edgeryders, Loomio, the OECD, OuiShare, CHEST and the University of Naples. You can read their feedback reports in the public resources section.

We also thank AutoConsulta Cuidadana and Ganemos Madrid, which win the Open Call as well but couldn’t commit to the testing phase because of their strong involvement in the preparation of the Spanish elections.[/vc_message][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The partners of the CATALYST project develop collective intelligence tools for social and societal innovation. These tools can be viewed as comprising a spectrum of capabilities that range from collective sensing (where a collective gathers data on its environment), through sensemaking (interpreting data to identify patterns that warrant action), ideation (developing ideas about which actions to pursue), decision-making (selecting the best actions), and finally collective action (implementing these actions in a coordinated effective way).

CATALYST partners launched in July 2014 an Open Call for Collaboration to community partners interested in trying and testing the collective intelligence tools, processes and methodologies developed through the project activities among their own communities. The tests took place between January and July 2015.

Although the open call is closed, we are always looking for partners interested in using our collective intelligence tools in order to start large-scale discussions around a pre-defined societal issue. All our tools are available in open source.

Below you can find the Open Call rules.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#e0e0e0″][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”Selection criteria”]Future Community partners will have to meet the following criteria:
