Activities include:

  • Roadmapping – defining the future research agenda by engaging with experts within and outside of
    Europe and running consultation events
  • Facilitating community building and collaboration opportunities for researchers interested in
    collective adaptive systems through workshops and conferences
  • Online media lounge with downloadable resources to encourage improved collaboration
    between researchers within Europe and internationally
