  1. 1. SciCafe 2.0 Prof. Atta Badii, second name School of Systems Engineering University of Reading, UK WWW: http://www.isr.reading.ac.uk eMAIL: atta.badii@reading.ac.uk
  2. 2. Overview • Coordination Action • Responding to: - ICT-2013.5.5 Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation; c) Engaging citizens and society at large (Coordination Actions) • Partners: - University of Reading (Coordinator) - National Research Council - IRPPS Science Communication and Education Unit (SCE) & IRPPS Social Informatics and Computing Unit (SIC) - University of Florence (UNIFI) - Environmental Social Science Research Group
  3. 3. Objectives • extending Science Cafes to the virtual dimension by developing an appropriate ICT platform • foster the “science café” instrument making use of ICTbased instruments in a wiki-like form, • enhance collective awareness of relevant scientific issues (such as global warming, energy, biomedicine, etc.) • investigate how science cafés can be exploited as a collective decision-making tool for approaching participative/electronic democracy issues
  4. 4. Detailed Objectives • Setting up a knowledge database system, articulated in scenarios, users profiles and experts databases • Developing a web interface (SciCafe2.0 virtual platform), with particular attention to portable devices, that will allow an easy and customisable mash-up of standard social channels, and access to the knowledge database for input and feedback, with a bottom-up approach • Set up a support agency for science cafés • Assess the science café as a tool for developing collective knowledge, exploring the potential and added values of SciCafe 2.0 tools for the participation of citizens in public debates. • Improve the practice of peer communication with citizens and scientists
  5. 5. Expected Outcomes • Science Café 2.0 Forum • Customised intelligent Virtual platform of the SciCafe2.0 • Distance participation and remote direction of SciCafès • Support agency with analysis of performances • Support for other CAPS projects in engaging with their constituents
