Digital platforms for the Maker movement: OpenCare, OpenMaker, MAKE-IT

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.

OpenCare empowers care receivers to design and prototype bottom-up solutions to specific care problems. The European network of makerspaces, Fab Labs, etc. makes these solutions distributed, as every prototype devised can be reproduced, tested and deployed anywhere in the world.

OpenMaker aims to create a transformational and collaborative ecosystem that fosters collective innovations within the European manufacturing sector by connecting makers and established companies and drives it towards more sustainable business models, production processes, products, and governance systems by bringing together manufacturers and makers. OpenMaker is seeking strong and innovative applications from Maker-Manufacturer teams who aim to have a social impact on their surrounding communities: 20 projects will be accelerated by hubs in Slovakia (Bratislava), Italy (Firenze/Torino), Spain (Bilbao) and United Kingdom (Wolverhampton/Birmingham/Liverpool/Salford). The goal is to foster collaboration between makers and manufacturers, prototype innovations including products, production processes, supply or value chains, distribution or ownership, and encourage partnerships that are sustainable and deliver social impact.

MAKE-IT focuses on how CAPS enable the growth and governance of the Maker movement using and creating social innovations and achieving sustainability, especially for understanding how maker communities are organised and governed; what makers do and how they behave; the various ways this impacts on and adds value to society. MAKE-IT investigated ten case studies, state-of-the-art of ICT and Maker CAPS in order to understand the ways that the Maker movement views and exploits the opportunities afforded by CAPS approaches. The insights from the case studies and the technology scenarios are directly deployed with knowledge transfer through sharing and discussions and the implementation of CAPS-technology enhancements.

Dario Marmo is a monitor and evaluation specialist, with more than nine years of experience in project management, feasibility studies, pre – feasibility studies, monitoring and evaluation, coordination and tutoring, teaching and facilitating training sessions and workshops, social research. He acquired the knowledge to perform all this tasks through several projects located in Italy, Malawi, Camerun, Benin, Albania, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Senegal, Barbados, Guatemala, Morocco, South Africa, Tanzania. His main interests are Monitoring and Evaluation, more specifically of capacity building local development and social business projects and programs, especially applied to organisational empowerment processes.

Massimo Menichinelli is a designer who researches and develops open, collaborative, and co-design projects and the systems that enable them since 2005. He uses design tools and processes in order to help companies, organisations, cities and local communities to develop open and collaborative processes, business, services, places and projects such as Open Design, FabLab and User-driven Open and Social Innovation initiatives. Massimo has given lectures and workshops in various countries including Italy, Spain, Finland, Germany, United Kingdom, Mexico, Colombia, South Korea and Singapore so far.

He recently worked on the development of the Aalto FabLab, co-organised the first Open Knowledge Festival in Helsinki and co-founded the Open Design Working Group at the Open Knowledge Foundation. He lectures on Digital Fabrication and Open Design at Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland). He recently developed the MUSE FabLab (Trento, Italy) and he is now Director at the Make In Italy Italian Fablab & Makers Foundation Cdb Onlus.
