CAPS: Overview

Introduction

The acronym CAPS stands for Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation. The European Commission (EC) first used this label in 2012, in the context of the Seventh Framework Programme of research in order to identify a new group of research projects and, in some sense, a new area of research. The last call for proposals for CAPS was launched in 2014 with a total budget of 43 million euro. Nearly 200 proposals were submitted, of which 24 have been selected for funding, including MAKE-IT.
