What sparks innovation? A clash of ideas, a fresh perspective, a fusion of expertise?
NESTA Connect seeks to stimulate innovation through collaboration, in part by exploring the participatory culture of the web. We are delighted to be hosting the event ‘Mass Collaboration?’, in partnership with the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort university, where we will hear from Howard Rheingold and Mark Earls, writers who examine and challenge traditional perceptions of mass behaviour change and cooperation.
This event is intended as the start of a conversation on how to optimise the potential social impact of networked technology, and it's impact on how we should think about mass collaboration for innovation in the UK and beyond. We hope you can join us.
