A group where we coordinate to deliver a research project on community-driven care services. The idea first came in the context of a LOTE4 session proposed and led by Rémy Cagnol. We wrote a proposal in February-March 2015, which got funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 framework programme. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Human capital is what drives a Project Forward Part 1

With modern day communication technology sharing through email, social media and Skype it rarely encourages people to share the evolution of their project. We often list, number, bullet point, but seldom do we engage in informal discussions where we share knowledge and reflect. It’s in the reflection that we witness human capital being the driving force behind our projects. It’s worth taking a look at SoundSight, whose story has sparked curiosity in co-creating care solutions.  There are many factors that determine the direction of our projects.

Conversations that lead to a beneficial change in health and social care.

We will be sharing initiative conversations that paved the way for solutions for care. During these personal interactions it’s not the scientific “Why” we tap into but “Why at the human level. It's in the personal interactions that give a voice to humanistic problems which often lead to a beneficial change in health and social care. Whether it’s an individual or a community that had direct or an indirect contribution, it gives the opportunity to learn more about the initiative and think about how their own activities and environment will change.

D2.3 Draft report on engaging open networks in meaningful online conversations

I assume it will be me working on this..

@LuceChiodelliUB can you let me know when is this due? End of December or later?


Equally important, rather than text, can I make it into a collection of slides with text, so that it is more useful to the partners too? I would like to expand the presentation I did in Milano into something more detailed. An example.

Write a brief summary of OpenCare for Acupuncture Quarterly

Hi, was hoping we might be able to get an article together for Acupuncture Quarterly, a magazine I edit that goes out to about 3000 UK acupuncturists.

Our next issue is on new paradigms in health and care [which seems pretty relevant!], and we have some space for additional articles.

We'd need it by early next week, I'm afraid [should have thought of this sooner], but it doesn't need to be long:

Hacking Health Bordeaux

The event is a hackathon week-end around :

  • Takes place in Bordeaux, in a building called the "Athénée municipal"
  • Starts on Friday October 21 (late afternoon) / Ends on Sunday (afternoon)

 

D 1.5 Documentation from onboarding workshops due end of Sept

Edgeryders is leading this deliverable:

D1.5 Collection of textual and visual documentation from onboarding workshops. It includes a methodological note on facilitation and offline engagement, as well as follow up materials like media articles and testimonials (delivery date: month 9)

We will submit what we have from Milano and the cities currently involved in hosting workshops: Thessaloniki, Brussels, Berlin.

[Slides Presentation] Methods and tools for OpenCare community engagement

A presentation by Edgeryders for OpenCare partners and communities in Milano.

It is intended to share key ways in which we approach community building and some methods for engagement. I include less info about communication activities per se because most of our communication is included in engagement activities.

The evaluation reports are attached.

First OpenCare paper production canvas

Heaven would be to arrive in Geneva with a shared view on who likes to do what and how to make the best out of the time available there. If we have a afternoon session on the 13th we can do even more perhaps (findings?), or leave to Master of Networks more room.

Abstract for Political Forms and Movements in the Digital Era - final feedback gathering

This is the result of @Federico Monaco @Ezio_Manzini and myself meeting last week. Feel free to edit or comment. For reference, see this thread. 

Here you find the call for papers; the track we have chosen is: Mobilizations in the era of “doing together” and the commons
