P2PVALUE – Techno-social platform for sustainable models and value generation in commons-based peer production in the Future Internet
The P2PVALUE project ended in September 2016.
Commons based peer production (CBPP) is a new form of social innovation that is becoming ever more important in the information society. Current examples include Wikipedia, Open source software projects such as Drupal and Moodle, and open hardware projects such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi. In CBPP, collaboration is voluntary and autonomously organised around a common pool of knowledge and skills that are freely available to all members. CBPP has come to dominate innovation in software, and today we are witnessing it also making inroads into product design and production.
Because CBPP is a relatively new phenomenon, there is a need for theoretical and practical knowledge of how to organise this form of cooperation successfully. The P2PValue project addressed this by developing a software platform designed to facilitate the creation of resilient and sustainable CBPP communities.
