CEST SUPPORTING INITIATIVES
I. 2nd BRASSCOM SEMINAR ON PUBLIC POLICIES AND BUSINESSES 

CEST, among other institutions, supported the second edition of the Seminar on Public Policies and Businesses held by the Brazilian Association of Information and Communication Technology Companies (BRASSCOM), in Brasília, on March 15 & 16, 2017. 

The event gathered several Government representatives, within the Federal Administration, National Congress, and Judiciary Branch, involved and interested in the discussion of ICT, as well as businessmen, researchers, opinion leaders, and other entities in the sector.

II. RE-LI-A-PLATFORM FOR THE CURATORSHIP OF DIGITAL OBJECTS

The Educadigital Institute has launched a collective financial campaign on Catarse for RE-LI-A – a search platform for OER digital objects. 

OERs are educational learning and research materials, available in any support or media, preferably on platforms or free formats (free software), which are in public domain or flexibly licensed, permitting other parties to use, reuse, remix, and adapt these materials. 

It is already possible to find OERs on the internet through advanced searches on Google or Flicker, for instance. But there is no platform able to classify them by knowledge, subject, and school-level areas, or to help understand the types of user’s license for these materials. 

The project can be seen in further details on Catarse. 


III. NETWORK CENTERS (NoCs) 

Did you know that CEST is a member of the Network Centers ?

The Network Centers - Research, Society and Internet Network Centers - (NoCs) were launched by a group of academic centers in 2012, during an International Symposium, hosted by Berkman Center for Internet & Society of Harvard University. 

NoC is a collaborative initiative among academic institutions focused on interdisciplinary research for the development, social impact, political implications, and social issues related to the Internet. 

This Network objective is to increase the interoperability among participating centers to encourage the creation of transnational and transdisciplinary conversations, the debate, the teaching, the learning, and the engagement concerning the urgent new technology issues, social change, and matters related to politics and regulatory developments.

On April, 27 the "I Seminar on Crowdsourcing - Opportunities & Challenges" will be held at Prof. Oswaldo Fadigas Torres Auditorium, next to the School of Engineering of the University of São Paulo.

Come and learn what has changed after 10 years that the term crowdsourcing was coined; whether this business model is worthwhile, and why the society has not profited more from this kind of collaborative work and the crowds’ intelligence.
