The FoCAS project is a coordination activity and aims to integrate, coordinate, and increase the visibility of research within the FoCAS FET Proactive Initiative and in research areas related to collective adaptive systems. FoCAS provides a positive interface between science and the science-interested public and demonstrates how research on collective adaptive systems can impact society.

The integrating role of the FoCAS coordination activity includes:

  • Organizing joint meetings, workshops and cross-project discussions to improve communication among FoCAS-funded research projects and sharing ideas among people and projects.
  • Improving collaboration between research areas and among researchers through events and activities which can help identify new and emerging research.
  • Broadening horizons for European researchers by initiating important collaborations with researchers and research networks, particularly in North America and Asia.

  • Publication of research successes, conferences, and relevant events through a hyper-media web portal, newsletters, e-bulletins, video documentaries, and through the FoCAS online reading room with articles in the FoCAS magazine and links to relevant scientific articles.

  • Stimulate a new generation of collective adaptive systems researchers and assist in their training through summer schools and short courses.

  • Expanding the public visibility of FoCAS research and its expected societal impact in accessible ways through a participatory website, FoCAS magazine, and in well-informed debates at public events.

  • Provide an open participatory framework that helps define the research landscape for collective adaptive systems, identifies centers of research activity, and anticipates the potential for future research.
