DMY Berlin 2011: Open Helsinki at the MakerLab

We are very honored to announce that openp2pdesign.org (Massimo Menichinelli) will be part of the 2011 edition of DMY Berlin, together with the Open Helsinki group inside the MakerLab. This event is part of World Design Capital Helsinki 2012.

Open P2P Design
Open P2P Design brings open source and peer-to-peer dynamics inside a community-centered design process, in order to have real co-design projects with people and their communities. We can use Open P2P Design for co-designing Open Design processes or commercial or public services with open and peer-to-peer dynamics, starting from communities and involving them inside the design process. We can also use it for analyzing an existing business and opening to collaboration some of its activities, or design new ones in order to start a collaboration with a community of users.

SATURDAY 4 JUNE, 12:00-12:45
SUNDAY 5 JUNE, 12:00-12:45
Registration in advance not needed


Markets and business models for Open and DIY projects

Which are the possible business models for Open projects like Open Design and Open Hardware? And what about running a Fab Lab or a similar place? Which strategies can we adopt in order to have successful DIY Craft projects? People that want to organize collaborative spaces or companies need to think about how to run their business in a sustainable way, but even single or groups of Open Designers could get more insights for their project if they discover the possible business models. Let's have a look at the existing markets, the common business models and the possible future scenarios.

SATURDAY 4 JUNE, 14:00-14:45
SUNDAY 5 JUNE, 14:00-14:45
Registration in advance not needed
