MAKE-IT at Maker Faire Rome 2016

During Maker Faire Rome 2016, MAKE-IT participated in several activities, including its Advisory Board Meeting and the talk MAKE-IT: understanding and experimenting collective awareness platforms for the governance of Maker initiatives. We also participated in the informal Collective Awareness Platforms (CAPS) meeting, where makers met few other Horizon 2020 CAPS projects that, like us, work with the Maker Movement, and discussed how to work together in this.

We will publish more blog posts and contents in the next weeks, for the moment we already have a video recording and the slides of the MAKE-IT: understanding and experimenting collective awareness platforms for the governance of Maker initiatives talk:

And David Langley, one of our partners, wrote a blog post post about his experience at Maker Faire Rome 2016 where he gives us a little reflexion about the current status of Maker Movement: Thousands of independent inventors, with one blind spot.

Upcoming Workshop


The Maker Movement comes in many shapes and sizes: Insights into Europe’s Maker Scene

The MAKE-IT project studies how 10 different maker initiatives use “collective awareness platforms” – a range of digital services and applications to enhance many forms of awareness. We want to understand how the makers organize themselves, collaborate together and how they create value. Both societal value and value enabling the maker initiatives themselves to be sustainable.

On December 1st, we will present some of our ‘hot off the press’ findings and discuss together what the implications are. We also want to collect input, identify new trends and hot topics. So expect the workshop to be interactive; we want your input!

Anyone interested in the Maker Movement is welcome: makers, DIY fans, researchers, communicators, students, etc. The workshop is free of charge.

Date: December 1st 2016, 13:00 - 17:00h
