Collaboration in times of crisis: Community-driven innovation for a digital future

Thursday, 26 August 2021 - 8:45pm

On August 26 the Sharing, Collaboration, Cooperation (SCC) Erasmus+ project hosted its final event to present its outcomes and conclusions. Together we explored the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on co-working spaces, and their subsequent transformation into inclusive collaborative spaces.

The past two years have proven to be challenging, the Covid-19 pandemic completely altered the way we collaborate and proved to accelerate the transition towards alternative ways of working. In this final event we explore the possibilities of community-driven innovation and the transition towards an inclusive digital society.

Attendees learned more about the potential of collaborative spaces in the future of work, the future of education, and development of the collaborative economy. Final recommendations to the development of a common rationale for innovation communities, co-working spaces and education institutions were presented.
