Is Open Source the Future of Manufacturing?

Create, Ego,

Meetups are Techfestival’s co-created events: Hosted and curated by organizers from diverse tech communities – open to all curious minds!

NB: Capacities are limited. Please RSVP to register, and arrive in good time to secure your spot!


Global currents in technology are hinting towards an emerging major trend of tossing patents and copyrights in favor of building communities of co-creators as a way to scale and accelerate business. This is not only in software, but increasingly also for physical products. How do you open your design for remixing and free re-use while still building a profitable business? Hardware companies, makers, business developers and other curious festival audience are welcome at this presentation and Q&A to explore together with REMODEL how manufacturing businesses can use open source methodology to develop environmentally sustainable and economically sound business models for physical products.
