Crowdmapping Digital Social Innovation in Europe

This is an invitation to join a crowdmapping 
exercise to constitute a network of organisations 
and communities involved in supporting and 
delivering Digital Social Innovation across 

The network is part of a Europe-wide research 
project in to Digital Social Innovation (DSI) 
funded by the European Commission, DG Connect and 
run by Nesta, in partnership with the Waag 
Society, ESADE, IRI and Future Everything

This network is specifically for organisations 
and communities that harness the network effect 
of the Internet for social good. If your 
organisation and the projects you are engaged in 
meet the criteria listed below, please put 
yourself on the map and help us grow the DSI 
network across Europe!
	* Engage grass-roots networks and "bottom-up"  communities of users
	* Use a combination of digital tools, 
systems or methods in a disruptive way (open 
networks, data, open hardware, open knowledge)
	* Make a positive social impact in a 
variety of domains (health, wellbeing, 
sustainability, collaborative economies, access 
to knowledge and education, public services etc)
	* Work and collaborate across Europe
	* Creates a "network effect" through 
online collaboration ie the larger number of 
users a service has, the better it works.

Being part of DSI allows your organisation to:

·         Collaborate with other DSI projects across Europe
·         Showcase your work and network to 
access potential EC funding and to reach other 
·         Achieve visibility being on the map
·         Promote grassroots civic innovation and truly impact policy in the EU

All best wishes,

The DSI research partnership
