The presentation describes a collaborative strategy for colleges, universities, and libraries in a networked model of I-Open Civic Forums to strengthen their role as conveners, connectors, and leaders in national and global prosperity.
The presentation describes an accelerated model of Civic Forums capable of incorporating COINS and CONDOR to connect legacy assets to innovation for education, economic, and workforce development. Our strategy is based on I-Open's experience in the last six years building face-to-face and online collaborative communities for enterprise collaboration.
