Digital Platforms For The Maker Movement: OpenCare, OpenMaker, MAKE-IT
A panel with the Horizon 2020 CAPS projects MAKE-IT, OpenCare, OpenMaker during Maker Faire Rome 2017.
Digital platforms have been very successful in leveraging long-tail of markets and in building ecosystems, partnerships and communities. Some platforms have focused specifically on supporting democratic practices that are environmentally aware, participatory and based on sharing and collaboration. These platforms, called Collective Awareness Platforms (CAPS), are an example of new models to create awareness of emerging sustainability challenges and of the role that each and every one of us can play to ease them through collective action. A specific program of Horizon 2020 European projects has focused on CAPS, and some of these projects have worked with the Maker movement, addressing it with different perspectives and methods. OpenCare, OpenMaker and MAKE-IT are some of these projects and in this talk they will discuss their activities and results with the audience.
