Overview of Catalyst Research project given at FutureEverything conference 2012 giving an insight into the project, how it works, recent projects, including Patchworks and how to get involved.

Catalyst is a research project based at Lancaster University bringing together community groups and academics from social science, computing, design and management science to carry out transformative research on the theme of citizen-led social innovation.
Mission
Catalyst has two primary research questions:

(1) Understanding behaviour: what stimulates people to participate in civic actions and why?

(2) Tools for change: what next-generation digital technologies best support how people want to innovate in a civic action setting?
