Here’s What Happened At DEEP 2016:

Thinking about international collaboration in ICT? We have the project you! Discovery Lab was at DEEP 2016. Join the conversation and start a collaboration.

This year’s theme is:  “Our Data: Who owns it, who controls it, what can we do with it?”

In 2016  our focus was on four critical questions:

  • Can we design an inclusive and sustainable innovation agenda for Canada and globally?
  • How do we leverage emerging systems and practices to re-connect and foster more inclusive communities?
  • Can we create blueprints and roadmaps for more inclusive cities, spaces, and travel?
  • How can we design inclusive policies suited to the quickly changing complex adaptive systems we live in?

In 2016 we welcomed the participation of four initiatives that each bring essential perspectives to the DEEP agenda, namely: international collaboration, platforms for inclusive prosperity, privacy, and life-long learning.
