AMI Family Methamorphosis
From AMI@Work Communities Wiki
The AMI@Work Family of Communities has thrived from a modest network of specialists gathered by several organizations involved in the MOSAIC project to a Europe-wide community of more tha 3300 experts in the field of collaborative innovation. Nonetheless, the five main Family’s constructing pillars, that have existed since its creation, i.e.: self-organisation, independence, human centrism, and its virtual and voluntary character, are to remain as the building blocks of the new structure. However, to express a shift to the new approach, AMI@Work’s name which stood for AMbient Intelligence AT Work changes to AMbient Innovation AT Work.
The new proposed structure of the AMI@Work Family of Communities is intended to facilitate synergy with the Living Lab movement at large and in particular with the organizational structure of the ENoLL based on Innovation Domains Networks. Based on the results of the poll published on the AMI web site, the proposed Vertical Domain Communities are:
- Engineering, Manufacturing and Logistics
- Environment and Territory
These vertical domains should be perceived through the context of open collaboration and regional development.
In addition to them, 3 horizontal Domain Communities have been identified:
- Living Lab and Open Innovation Methodology
- Enabling ICT for Living Lab and Open Innovation
- Learning Living Lab and Open Innovation
