About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Hosted by Nesta and SAGE Publishing, the event was a day of talks, workshops and discussions to map the best tools and methods for collective intelligence; to learn from the inspiring people and projects already pioneering important work in this space; and to discuss how we can make the most of the opportunity in collective intelligence through research, experiments and practical programmes.

We also created an open evening event to cater to a wider interested audience. This was an opportunity to hear a bit more about Nesta’s new Centre for Collective Intelligence Design, an upcoming grants initiative linked to the centre and a new journal being developed in partnership with SAGE Publishing.
