Social Innovation

Moving Communities STEP 6

Platoniq is a team of cultural producers, social innovators and digital platform developers across different regions in Spain. Since 2001, the association of ICTs, free and open culture and citizen participation has been our main driving force to create social innovation regionally, nationally and internationally.

We firmly believe in the potential of open culture in opposition to the privatisation of knowledge and as a tool for more democratic and collective access to information, to the Commons and the empowerment of diverse communities. Through our approach, we facilitate collaboration and distributed innovation processes that are able to introduce cultural shifts in organisations from sectors such as education, culture, heritage and social and solidarity economy.


Platoniq is looking for a Content Producer & Editor to support across a number of social innovation and co-creation projects with a European scope.
Over the next 6 months our work will be developing in three directions:

  • Culture Labs: a project that seeks to promote the use and reuse of European cultural heritage through partnerships between community organizations, public and cultural institutions, with a special focus on migrant communities.
  • Universities of the Future: developing a set of tools and approaches to make co-design practices and mindset deeply rooted into the new types of learnings for Industry 4.0 and into the creation of products, services and industry.
  • Moving communities: we are working on the 2.0 version of an idea-development methodology we have previously developed, focusing on innovative ideas committed to social change.

Your responsibilities will include:
  • Leading on writing co-creation methodologies reports for EU project deliverables, in collaboration with team members (Culture Labs);
  • Ensuring that communications with specific European project partners are smooth and fluid throughout the 6 months (Culture Labs);
  • Conducting a small desk-based research on topics relating to Industry 4.0, summarising and digesting content for a non-expert public (Universities of the Future);
  • Supporting the development of materials for a Train the Trainer two-day course in Palma de Mallorca (Universities of the Future);
  • Editing and reviewing content for existing and work-in-progress Platoniq’s methodology manuals and web content on (Moving Communities).
