This deliverable from the OPENNEXT project (https://opennext.eu/) contains the first version of the Demonstrator Framework for company-community-collaborations in which SMEs and fabrication labs (Fablabs/makerspaces) collaborate to build community-supported open source hardware and viable business models to support it. The deliverable consists of a main guide, primer checklists for the fabrication labs and SME’s, and catalogue of recommended activities. The main guide works as a welcome introduction for SMEs and fabrication labs to the OPENNEXT open-source collaboration journey and provides an overview of the OPENNEXT strategic aim.
It is intended to help Labs and SMEs in preliminary phase decision-making in planning their collaboration journey. The primer checklists further prepare the labs and SMEs for the journey, by ensuring that they understand implications, reflect on the foregoing process, and align values by seeing eye to eye with each other. The catalogue of recommended activities provides Labs and SMEs with examples of activities that can be organized together in a customized collaboration journey, and which will help them set and achieve the goals of the collaboration.
