Collaboratory Week 2013
The Collaboratory Week takes a number of forms, from seminars, to public lectures and roundtable discussions. You can read more about the background of the event, keynotes and programme here at this webpage.
In 2012 the Collaboratory took the form of a two-day conference, facilitated by MindLab. This year we have expanded the Collaboratory into a Platform/MindLab co-hosted full week of activities, rather than confine them to two days only. This will enable us to bring more people and experts into collaboration and thus focus on more key issues within our thematic agenda of policy, civic engagement and practice-based innovation.
This year's theme is Policy into Practice. The theme will be developed around the following key issues:
- Civic engagement
- Governance and creativity
- Reform involvement
- Social innovation
