Ανοικτός σχεδιασμός και κατασκευή

Περίληψη εγχειρήματος: Open Design and Manufacturing (OD&M) is an ERASMUS+ project which develops an Alliance between Higher Education Institution (HEIs), traditional manufacturers and innovation communities of digital-savvy makers, in order to set up a trust-based framework able to generate knowledge and capacity conducive to: HEIs – the increased capacity to prepare the next generation of ...

Η βιωσιμότητα των ανοικτών (υλικών) τεχνολογιών: Εμπειρική μελέτη

Περίληψη εγχειρήματος: This project will involve a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of “designed global, manufactured local” (DGML) products from an ecological economics perspective. We will conduct a life-cycle assessment (LCA) of 2-3 DGML technological solutions (e.g. a house, an open source 3D printer, a wireless data transmission, field sensor node). LCA will include an assessment ...

Ανοικτές τεχνολογίες στην αγροτική παραγωγή

Περίληψη: This project attempts to explore the open source technology (with a focus on hardware) for agriculture emerging from a mode of production different from the capitalist one, that of commons-based peer production. There are indeed several existing open source projects in relation to the primary sector of the economy, and particularly agriculture. This project combines ...

Η ανάδυση των makerspaces

Περίληψη: The criticism on the smart city is used as a starting point to highlight the promises of makerspaces, that is to say, those emerging urban sites that promote sharing practices; exercise community-based forms of governance; and utilize localized manufacturing technologies. A bird’s-eye-view of the history of makerspaces is provided tracing their roots back to ...

Αξιολογώντας το παραγωγικό μοντέλο: Σχεδιάζουμε παγκόσμια, κατασκευάζουμε τοπικά

Περίληψη του ερευνητικού εγχειρήματος υπό τον τίτλο “Σχεδιασμένο Παγκόσμια, Κατασκευασμένο Τοπικά: Αξιολογώντας τις Πρακτικές, την Καινοτομία και τις Δυναμικές Βιωσιμότητας ενός Αναδυόμενου Παραγωγικού Μοντέλου”: Αυτό το εγχείρημα θα καταγράψει, αναλύσει, δοκιμάσει και αξιολογήσει έναν νέο τρόπο δημιουργίας αξίας, ο οποίος βασίζεται στον συνδυασμό των ψηφιακών κοινών αγαθών (π.χ. ανοιχτή γνώση και σχεδιασμός) με την επιτραπέζια ...

Ψηφιακά κοινά, τοπικοποιημένη κατασκευή και βιωσιμότητα

Ακολουθεί μία σύντομη περιγραφή της μελέτης:  The emerging discussion about the sustainability potential of distributed production is the starting point for this paper. The focus is on the “design global, manufacture local” model. This model builds on the conjunction of the digital commons of knowledge and design with desktop and benchtop manufacturing technologies (from three-dimensional ...

Εξερευνώντας ένα αναδυόμενο παραγωγικό μοντέλο

This article aims to contribute to the ongoing dialogue on post-capitalist construction by exploring the contours of a commons-oriented productive model. On the basis of this model called “design global-manufacture local”, we argue that recent techno-economic developments around the emergence of commons-based peer production and desktop manufacturing technologies, may signal new alternative paths of social ...

Προς μια έξυπνη πόλη βασισμένη στα κοινά

During the last decade there has been considerable debate over the relatively vague concept of the “smart city”. Nowadays, the smart city has crystallised into an image of a city permeated with top-down and centrally controlled technological infrastructures that promise to improve the urban environment in terms of efficiency, security and sustainability. However, many scholars ...

Παραγωγή και διοίκηση στα hackerspaces

Η έρευνα αυτή προσπαθεί να διαπιστώσει τις αξίες, τη φιλοσοφία και τις αρχές των οργανωσιακών δομών των hackerspaces: This research project deals with the phenomenon of hackerspaces and sheds light on the relationship of their underlying values, organizational structures and productive processes to those of the online communities of Commons-based peer production projects. While hackerspaces ...
