Alberto%20Cottica

Alberto Cottica, Co-Founder and Research Director
I am an expert on collaborative governance and participation, with proven track record of managing processes of ICT-enabled design and delivery of public policy – and even public services – in collaboration with citizens.

I have firsthand experience in establishing, nurturing and running communities of citizens that work towards common goals, sometimes in alliance with government). I also have a proven track record of driving adoption of innovative practices – and, more importantly, of a practice of openness and transparency in policy delivery – in fairly conservative large organisations, including government agencies. To achieve this, I had to hone my advocacy skills, and use them successfully to build positive narratives that change is possible, and we need not be scared of it.

I study participation through data analysis. That led me to build up substantial skills as a data scientist, and in particular a network scientist, both in business and in academia.

For reference and findability by those editing and checking, the website is here: https://edgeryders-start.netlify.app/

This doesn’t work:
live.edgeryders.eu/13894

corrected it now - not sure what to do about the signup form though - mailchimp?

There’s a typo on the Hompage event date:
21 Julyr

And the Registration takes you to Summit NGI: is that what we want?
https://summit.ngi.eu/register/

I think Mailchimp is very hard to access by different people - because of the verification. If you, me, Maria or more people will need acess to the incoming registrations, it will be a headache.

I found AirTable better, but my favourite interface was Typeform - the problem with the latter is that you don’t get a nice spreadsheet automatically -you have to export and format the excel, so hard to maintain.

ok so we stick to : https://covid19-summit.netlify.app/#join and add it to the bottom of https://edgeryders-start.netlify.app/ under a section called “Join us”:

We wish to Make minor edits in language for two of the existing questions + Add another question @owen can

  1. Name” - add explanation: How would you like to be known in the community platform? You can also use an alias if you wish to be anonymous.

  2. Add field: Which Languages do you speak?. Not every conversation can, or should be, held in English. We try to make it easy for people communicate in the languages that they prefer.

  3. Add a question: Tell us about you. What is a burning question that drives your work? How did you get started and what hurdles have you met along the way? Which doubts do you have about the work you are doing and the path forward? What kind of support would you like to offer others traveling a similar path?
    By sharing your story on the community platform you enable others to connect you with people, conversations, opportunities relevant to your personal and professional development: This will enable our community managers to connect you with people, conversations, events and opportunities relevant to your journey.

can you test this form @noemi ? https://airtable.com/shrSqdOdBW9JWYo3T

We cannot create accounts for people without the Consent form.

Aha ok so we include a link to in in the consent checkbox?

ok we can send it to them in the follow up email to sign digitally and then send back to us?

1 Like

It would work to send it to them for signing - but we need to ask ourselves: is that process really easier than them registering on their own on the platform? It would take just as much time AND some emails back and forth,

@MariaEuler @johncoate what do you think?

I say this because Maria mentioned that for last year’s festival it was confusing for some people to register in different forms before they understood how to participate.
