Philippe Le Bon, Brussels

Since its beginnings in 2013 the Code Week EU has grown exponentially. In 2015 over half a million people in 46 countries participated in over 7,000 events, learning to program and cooperate in a digital environment. Also, born in the EU, the Code Week went global. In 2015 the Africa Code Week was created; also we now have ambassadors in countries like China and the US. This European initiative, aiming at fostering coding skills, digital literacy and tech-enabled collaboration is carried out by a network of passionate volunteers – the EU Code Week Ambassadors. Code Week brings together people from all walks of life – programmers and tech entrepreneurs, teachers, policy makers, big tech industry players – and most importantly – kids and young people.

The objective of the session

We are all very excited about the 4th edition of Code Week EU and are working towards reaching even higher numbers of participants. At the same time, it is an ideal moment to reflect together on how far we have gone, how this was possible, and how to move forward and reach out even further. How do we foster programming and other digital skills for 21st century work and life in an even more collaborative and sharing environment for everyone? What is the role of European policy? In other words – how do we make every week Code Week?

Chair: Mrs Claire BURY, Deputy Director General of DG CONNECT


  • Mrs Miapetra KUMPULA-NATRI, Member of the European Parliament, Member of the ITRE Committee
  • Mr Alessandro BOGLIOLO, Coordinator of Code Week 2016 and 2017
  • Mrs Ilona KISH,  Director of Public Libraries Association, gathering 65.000 Libraries across Europe
  • Mr Liam RYAN, Managing Director of SAP Labs, co-organizer of Africa Code Week 

The debate will look at following questions:

  1. What are the most important reasons for which individual people and organisations engage in fostering programming and related digital skills needed for today's world?
  2. How to best connect with people across the continent and the world and make a common project on these issues happen – lessons learnt 2013-2016 and a message for the future?
  3. How can we bring Code Week to the next level?

You can register for the debate here until 25 September.

New record for the EU Code Week: more than half a million people took part in 2015

Come and meet the Ambassadors of Code Week on 27 September in Brussels! This amazing network of volunteers has been active since 2013 in engaging hundreds of thousands of kids and adults in coding activities across Europe and beyond. We are planning a very interactive discussion on how to work together for promoting digital skills and competencies for the 21st century work and life. This debate is hosted by Claire Bury, Deputy Director General of DG CONNECT.

Katinka Matson's "Spiders" in "Plant: Exploring the Botanical World" (Phaidon) le : 25/10/2016


“Imagine a painter who could, like Vermeer, capture the quality of light that a camera can, but with the color of paints.”  — Kevin Kelly  


Phaidon has just published Plant: Exploring the Botanical Worlda visually stunning survey celebrating “the most beautiful and pioneering botanical images ever” from around the world across all media—from murals in ancient Greece to a Napoleonic-era rose print and cutting-edge scans. Included are botanical works by Carl Linnaeus, Leonardo da Vinci, Pierre-Joseph Redoute, Charles Darwin, Emily Dickinson, van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ellsworth Kelly, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Edge co-founder and resident artist, Katinka Matson.

"Spiders," first exhibited by Edge, is also featured in the first serial excerpt of the book, now appearing in major international news date, The Guardian and (Athens).

“This huge canvas by New York-based artist Katinka Matson uses magnification to emphasize the spider-like forms of petals of the spider chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium). At the start of the 21st century Matson developed a new way of portraying flowers by using a flatbed scanner, Adobe Photoshop and an ink-jet printer. Slowly scanning the flowers captures their exact appearance, without the distortion created by a single-lens photograph.” —The GuardianHer work has been featured on Edge since 2002.

Amplifying the impact of open access: Wikipedia and the diffusion of science le : 13/10/2016

With the rise of Wikipedia as a first-stop source for scientific information, it is important to understand whether Wikipedia draws upon the research that scientists value most. Here we identify the 250 most heavily used journals in each of 26 research fields (4,721 journals, 19.4M articles) indexed by the Scopus database, and test whether topic, academic status, and accessibility make articles from these journals more or less likely to be referenced on Wikipedia. We find that a journal's academic status (impact factor) and accessibility (open access policy) both strongly increase the probability of it being referenced on Wikipedia. Controlling for field and impact factor, the odds that an open access journal is referenced on the English Wikipedia are 47% higher compared to paywall journals. These findings provide evidence is that a major consequence of open access policies is to significantly amplify the diffusion of science, through an intermediary like Wikipedia, to a broad audience.

Social informatics as a concept: Widening the discourse le : 05/09/2016

This contribution examines the different concepts known as social informatics that have historically been separate. The paradigm that is preferred worldwide (based on Kling) is well described and often promoted, with a strong base both in the USA and Europe. This article, however, introduces lesser-known paradigms (based on Sokolov and later Ursul) that originated in the era of the USSR and have so far been employed chiefly in post-Soviet countries, including Russia. These paradigms have been neglected in English-written scientific literature, mainly because of the limited number of articles available in English. Other approaches are also introduced and related, which were historically named or classified as social informatics (American, British, Norwegian, Slovenian, German and Japanese). The present article introduces and further discusses the origin, historical development and basic methodological grounding of these approaches. All the approaches are then discussed and their differences as well as their similarities are pointed out. The aim is to create connections across the current generation of researchers, which includes the formation and conceptualization of different approaches and an exploration of possible areas for future cooperation.

Among subjects contributing to IoT, computer science contributed the highest publication share (64.93%), followed by engineering (43.01%), social sciences (4.65%), business, management and accounting (3.73%), physics (2.94%), and decision science (2.72%) during 2005–2014. Under broad subjects, the major priorities have been assigned to hardware (technology) with 43.87% share, followed by applications (42.93% share), architectural aspects of technology (22.69% share), security aspects (17.43% share), software (technology) (7.10% share), privacy (6.13% share), business models (0.85% share), governance (0.62% share), legal aspects and accountability (0.5% share), etc. Among the various organizations and authors contributing to IoT, the 20 most productive organizations and authors together contributed 16.78% and 6.13% publications share and 25.63% and 23.16% citation share to the cumulative global publications and citations output during 2005–2014. The top 15 most productive journals contributed 24.54% share to the total journal global publication output during 2005–2014, with largest number of papers (55) is published in Jisuanji Xuebao Chinese Journal of Computers, followed by International Journal of Distributed Sensor Network (50), Sensors Switzerland (46), China Communication (34), Wireless Personnel Communication (33), IEEE Sensors Journal (28), etc. There were only 10 highly cited papers (which came from 8 countries and involved 24 institutions and 41 authors), which had received 100 or more citations, and together got 2951 citations during 2005–2014.
