[VIC] Vivero de Iniciativas Ciudadanas (Incubator of Citizens’ Initiatives) is an open and collaborative platform designed to constructively promote, analyze and support critical processes, with special emphasis on transfers to the region, the city and public space. [VIC] listens to and examines concrete situations and proposes routes that unite theory and practice. The platform is structured as a web database incorporating all initiatives that, by nature of their social innovation, may serve as models for transferring knowledge to other groups, companies and/or authorities.
