Social Innovation, Cities and Public Policy
SEiSMiC National Network Meeting

Following three focus groups, the inaugural meeting of the Italian Network SEiSMiC held in Rome on July 14, 2014, and of the European Launching Event in Brussels on November 25 and 26, the SEiSMiC in Italy continues with a meeting based on three working groups aimed at deepening the themes identified in previous meetings: collaborative mapping, the path to new urban economies and civic monitoring of public services. The working groups will meet in different and differently significant locations in the city of Naples, which will be reached on foot (walking groups) from the space where the event will be opened and where the afternoon plenary will take place.
