On February 20th, 2014, the conference „Economic and Social Development of Rural Areas“, organized within project CentraLab, took place in Ždaňa, Slovakia in premises of main project pilot stakeholder – Association of Municipalities within Microregion Hornád. Many mayors from rural areas, policymakers responsible for rural development, local enterpreneurs, researchers but also citizens interested in this topic attended this event.
The conference served as a platform for discussions about possibilities for increase of prosperity of these areas – including the role of social and technical innovations. Within the conference, pilot activities realized within project CentraLab in Slovakia were concluded.
Within the conference, local farmers were invited to present their fresh products, and meals offered were cooked from local food products – both strongly creating local and traditional atmosphere. More information about the conference (in Slovak language) can be found on:

Compatibility of GI Data Licenses
We've recognised an important problem with geospatial (open) data licencing. There exist different licences and it is not easy to combine data from various sources with different licences, especially then in the open data domain when data can be reused.
As an example, how to handle licences of a combination of OpenStreetMap and Corine CLC data? Both licences are open, however, there are some differences. And what if there will be another input from other ten open data sources?
We've noticed that this issue is generally known. But we could not find any reasonable answer for this situation, both for the short and long terms.
Any ideas and suggestions?

CyberForum e.V. is working on a pilot that focusses on the combination of usability testing and open innovation processes. It will be - when implemented - tested within the SmarterCity Karlsruhe initiative, an initiative that focuses on IT-solutions for ameliorating the life of citizens. Due to the fact that these solutions are all IT-based, the pilot of CyberForum will be tested broadly in a real-life environment. After successful testing it is planned to translate the system into English and thus allow a transnational application to all CentraLab partners.
In April 2013 more than 60 representatives from business, research, administration and local politics came together to discuss and define the three flagship projects that shall be implemented until 2015 - Karlsruhe´s 300th birthday. All flagship projects rely on IT-solutions - again a good playground for the CentraLab pilot managed by CyberForum. The meeting took place the so-called "Kreativgründerzentrum Perfekt Futur" (creativity founder center), which consists of many containers, re-designed to become offices for creative founders.
