This is an opportunity for everyone to take a dive into some of the world’s most cutting-edge know-how in the field of open source hardware business development. Not only will participants be able to meet all the 10 manufacturing companies which have completed the REMODEL design-sprint and are currently working to implement their new open source hardware business strategies, but you will also be able to meet a large section of our REMODEL expert panel ( as well as take a deep dive into the REMODEL tools and methodologies, which are in the process of being transformed into an online toolkit that is easy (and free) for anyone in the world to use to build sustainable open source hardware business models and communities of co-creators themselves.
Format of the event
The REMODEL conference will be a 1-day event with a full day program of talks, debates, workshops and interactions. The main purpose is on one hand to share everything that we have learned, but also connect to the larger eco-system of practitioners in the field including companies (SMEs), academia and business innovation experts.
Why organize a conference?
In the Danish Design Centre we work from a principle which we call Open by default which not only means in legal terms that everything we do is openly licensed, unless specifically stated otherwise (for instance if there are certain requests from collaborators because of sensitive information), but also to signal clearly that we believe that innovation is stronger, faster and more scalable when it is open, collaborative and iterative. In other words: Standing on the shoulders of giants (and letting others stand on yours) makes it easier for all of us to become giants ourselves.
We hope to see as many as possible at the event on October 9, 2018, in Copenhagen and will return soon with more details including the full program. Participation in the event will be free of charge.
