Digital DIY in the new Comunificadora edition
The DiDIY Project may be formally over, but DiDIY research, advocacy and implementation continues! FKI, one of the DiDIY Consortium Partners, is also one of the developers of La Comunificadora, the Commons and Collaborative Economy projects incubator by Barcelona Activa, which launched its second edition a few weeks ago, and recently selected which projects it would support. Two of those projects, which are either based directly on DiDIY, or on the open business models that DiDIY makes possible, are listed below. To read the full list of the projects chosen, please see the full announcement on FKI's website.
