OpenCreative Labs, for example "Coworking Spaces", "Fab Labs" or "Maker Spaces", have opened their doors to creative cooperation worldwide for several years, and they promote openness, share knowledge and access to resources and technologies. The BMBF funded projects "OpenCreative Labs in Germany. Typologisation, dissemination, development conditions and political design" asks about the participatory potential of these places and their importance for user-driven innovation processes. The results of the project will be presented in Berlin on June 23, 2017, and discussed with policy makers and policy addresses with a view to possible regulation requirements and funding possibilities for these new locations.
