In Paris Glocal Camp we started to define a list of needs to start up a research group. We realized that this list could be helpful to start up any kind of research group or project, it is not specific for a tech context.
- Availability of open spaces to work.
- Definition of a research method, edges, taxonomies.
- Analysis of the economic sustainability.
- Diffusion, clear story telling.
- Meassure impact through correct tools and indicators.
- Identify problems (as this think tank’s raw materials) in a systematical way.
- Success and failure cases data base.
- Connection with external experts in order to have access to specific needed skills.
- Define Civictech ownership
- Legal advise support
- Documentatio protocol
The list has to be completed, restructured in groups of needs maybe… It is a very alpha version.
