D4.1 Innovation Action Report
This report provides a complete description of the activities and results of the MAKE-IT project’s Work Package 4, Innovation Action Research, which has two main aims. Our frst aim is to investigate the extent to which im- provements to the use of approaches based on “collective awareness platforms” (CAPS) by maker communities increase their effectiveness. In particular, we assess their influence across three analytical pillars which have provided the focus of the entire MAKE-IT project. The analytical pillars are (1) organisation and governance, (2) peer and collaborative activities and (3) value creation and impact. Our second aim is to analyse how such im- provements can strengthen the communities impact on the societal challenges they address.
