Pool of examples

The Pool of Examples for CyberParks is a collection of material about the interaction between people, places and technologies, it is prepared on the base of the COST Action 1306 - CyberParks and on collaborative work.

The purpose of the POOL is to promote successful production of public open spaces that are inclusive and meet the people’s needs by improving knowledge exchange. In the face of this, CyberParks seek to increase the understanding of the benefits of TECHNOLOGY to ENHANCE PLACES in order to achieve an ADDED VALUE (new outdoor experiences, new possibilities of use, new types of spaces).

You can contribute to this pool by submitting further examples:
