Participatory scenario workshop:

WHY (DO WE) STRENGTHEN AESOP COMMUNITY? Towards AESOP future in the digital transition

Friday, 29 October from 3pm to 5.30pm

The event in a nutshell

This event will aim to create a common knowledge on the "state of the art" of the Association and a shared vision of future steps, of the projects to be carried out - with particular reference to digital transition - and methods for meeting and collaborating within the community.

The event involves all participants actively and aims to create common knowledge on the "state of the art" of the Association, share a vision, develop scenarios on the AESOP future in digital transition, and deepen the benefits and opportunities of open access transition. This includes future steps, projects to be carried out, meeting and collaboration methods and so forth.

AEKOM – the AESOP KnOwledge Management platform – offers a relevant contribution to preparing for digital transition as a community.

The participatory scenario workshop is an opportunity to discover potentialities opened up by AEKOM for this AESOP effort for change while building a strong vision for our future, facing a post-pandemic environment.
