Case Studies

Case studies are analysed by WP3, which focuses on the following core objectives:

  •  to undertake primary research into the role of CAPS type approaches in ten contrasting Maker communities, as validated in WP2, with a focus on the three analytical pillars of organisational structures and governance, peer and collaborative activities, and value and impact creation;
  •  to understand the ways that the Maker movement views and exploits the opportunities afforded by CAPS approaches, as well as the current barriers and drivers involved;
  •  to understand the societal value created by Maker communities and their relation with other emerging digital and non-digital social innovations;
  •  to generate ideas for how CAPS approaches could be further exploited by Maker communities and emerging related movements to create societal impact.
