Early project history
As explained in history, IdeaLoom has its origins in the development as Assembl by Imagination for People, following a call for proposal launched by Institut du Nouveau Monde with the collaboration Marc-Antoine Parent. The first elements of architecture were done in impartition by Caravan, under the supervision of Benoit Grégoire, of Coeus technologies.
Subsequent development of Assembl was partly financed by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, as part of a larger project to develop an ecosystem of interoperable collective intelligence tools, Catalyst. As part of this ecosystem, Assembl followed this interoperability specification and could interoperate with the following tools:
- DebateHub (Knowledge Media Institute of Open University)
- LightMap (KMI)
- Collective Intelligence Dashboard (KMI)
- Deliberatorium analytics (MIT)
- EdgeSense (Wikitalia)
However, we recently had to temporarily disable this interoperability layer, and Catalyst functionality is on hold.
Discussions hosted on Assembl by Bluenove
Many discussions were hosted on Assembl by Imagination for People, and then Bluenove, as part of the Catalyst project, both with Catalyst partners and through an Open call for collaboration:
- Imagination For People:
Some discussions organized by Institut du Nouveau Monde:
- Plaidoyer pour la participation citoyenne
- Participation des publics sous-représentés
- Budget du Québec 2015 : augmente-t-il ou réduit-il les inégalités ?
Other discussions happened with:
- Mairie de Sceaux
- Mairie de Paris: Paris intelligente et durable, perspectives 2020 et au-delà
- MEDEF: Osons l'innovation Ouverte
and many others (many discussions with large entreprises in France are confidential.)
Conversence is looking forward to hosting conversations on IdeaLoom.
