International workshop on Open Design and Open Source Hardware Product Development

5-6 Mar 2020
Grenoble INP - 46 avenue Félix Viallet - Grenoble (France)

After the tremendous success of opensource software, today, opensource hardware is becoming an important topic both for industry and academia. This workshop is organized by the consortium of the OPEN! Project funded by German DFG and French ANR agencies. All the main contributors of this emerging field agree on the fact that the phenomenon has been possible thanks to the conjunction of two main technological factors that are, on the one hand the democratisation of digital manufacturing and fablabs or hacker spaces and, on the other hand, the democratisation of social networks and digital collaboration through the internet. However, today, OSH as a scientific object is still understudied. The characterization of participation, motivations, the organization and the processes, all this is still at a preliminary stage. Despite some promising research work or the creation of observatories such as OSH association or P2P Lab, the phenomenon remains widely unknown. Open source is a radical way to conceive the creation, production and use of services and goods, in a sustainable way, therefore it challenges the tradition industrial domain in a positive way and the articulation of business models and value creation is a real question today for OSH players. This workshop aims at gathering all the stakeholders that are making research, or practitioners that are looking for some understanding of what's happening there to join and share the piece of knowledge they have. Through roundtables and presentations, we aim at creating a forum where we can debate all together freely and openly.
