Open knowledge sharing communities - towards a commons based society?

Wolf, P. (Keynote speaker)

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


At the moment we are witnessing the advent of citizen-driven communities which share altruistic values of open and reciprocal knowledge sharing and understand knowledge as a public good, as a commons. All of them emerge around and make use of new technologies such as 3D printing, blockchain or biotechnology. Their processes and interests conflict with those of some established players in the society, for example by striving for affordable or free access to the technologies and/or methodologies for the production of the commons. Starting from a niche, those communities however set up innovation systems which might largely impact how the society will be organised in the future. This keynote looks exemplarily into the principles and processes of knowledge sharing in open design, open biology, and circular plastic revaluation communities and their implications on business models and society.
