Communication and organisation are also important activities but considerably less so than the other five. It is clear, that at this early stage of maker development, it seems that technology suppliers are already developing many more products and services tailored to engaging makers with each other through collaboration, Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company, sharing and learning.
These activities can be undertaken in a relatively informal and unstructured manner at the outset, although can later benefit from a more structured approach.
Maker development at this stage seems much less characterised by activities like communication and organisation that require relatively more planning and structure from the outset.
Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company, commercialisation is the second most important activity after collaboration, and this does requires considerable planning and structure, indicating the high importance of this particular activity for the survival of many Maker initiatives. Starting in the bottom right corner of Figure 8, ideas, prompts and proposals for new technology development are progressed through the 9 levels of the Technology Readiness Levels7, resulting in technology which is system operational, although there are no specific adopters at this point.
Adoption might, in turn, lead to real market or other real-life deployment, which also has five phases with a critical point between phases 2 and 3, when early enthusiasm and hype may not translate into a phase of reassessment and re-evaluation.
However if it does, then creative construction and market pull are possible for widespread rollout and use that creates real value and impacts across society. Finally, at the top of the figure, the different phases of deployment can also support different constellations of Maker initiative.
This is likely to commence with a single maker, but several of these may then scale and interact with other initiatives and actors through collaboration, community, ecosystem and fully networked examples.
Each of the three top dimensions in the figure feeds back into the bottom dimension, perhaps prompting ideas and innovations for further technology development through the cycle, as well as iterating with each other.
An analysis is currently being undertaken of each of these four technology dimensions using the TechRadar data. Recently, I was lucky enough to visit the Maker Faire Rome. Thousands of independent inventors showed their ideas to thousands more wannabe inventors. On one of Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company days access was exclusively Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company children, to inspire the next generation of inventors.
Altogether, very fascinating! It occurred to me Sexy Clements California dayzee there was a lot of undiscovered talent there in the huge hangars, just outside the Italian capital city. There was no shortage of scintillating ideas. Many of them made use of the newest technologies for making prototypes, to which large organisations no long have sole access: And mini-computers, such as Arduino, that control many inventions and instil them with smart characteristics.
Whilst walking around, I chatted to a couple who had developed a smart city solution for car sharing. The system registers Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company uses which car and the costs are automatically settled. A pilot in Cagliari is well on its way. There was a design for a computer with unlimited computational power, a hyper-efficient electromotor, drones to measure air quality, an enormous printer to squeeze mud and straw into the shape of houses, all sorts of robots and much, much more.
Francesco Pezzuoli and Dario Corona had invented a smart glove that registers sign language movements and translates them, via a smartphone, into speech.
This can reduce the gap between those with hearing impairments and the rest of the population. So why did I have the feeling that all this talent was, as yet, undiscovered?
To begin with: They seem to be preoccupied with their own technical solution. But I found many of their answers to my questions regarding their business plans to be weak. Because of this, I fear that many encouraging projects will fail unnecessarily. Most makers subscribe to the ideas behind the open source movement and most ideas are directly related to creating a better world, for disadvantaged people, for the environment or in other ways.
Commendable perhaps? But, at the same time it is somewhat strange: Because makers also crave financial stability and a healthy future perspective for their brainchildren. The thing that occurred to me above all, was that the visitors to the stands were hardly encouraged to contribute at all. Those guests walked around full of interest, Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company their own opinions, judgments and additional ideas.
I saw them being quite impressed with the Asian seeking european friend projects and they enjoyed discussing things with the makers. But, the other way around, the technically oriented makers seemed to have a blind spot for the potential contribution of the visitors. After seeing what a project was all about, the visitors generally just walked away without there being any lasting connection.
Unless they remember to go online once they get home and search out the maker projects they Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company the best. I believe that the interested public can do much. They can share their ideas for application areas and user situations. They can offer Sweet women want real sex West Columbia experience and knowledge of, for example, marketing and commercialization.
Apart from some notable exceptions, most maker projects do not achieve large scale penetration in practice. For some, that is not the intention.
Other ideas Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company just not be good enough. But I believe that too often this is because the makers try and do everything themselves. Whilst their strength often lies in the technology and not in other equally important areas.
Why do they not endeavour to build a community around their project from the well-intentioned visitors to their stands? Why do they not see the benefit of increasing the reservoir of available knowledge and talent Housewives of brawley ca they could make use of in making their project sustainably successful?
All in all, the vibrant Maker Faire Rome showed me something highly encouraging: Through access to advanced production technologies an enormous potential for innovation is being awakened within the citizen population.
Should large-scale production firms, such as those making consumer electronics, consumables and chemical products, fear a Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company wave of competition?
Well, I actually see the makers as representing a new opportunity for these firms. New forms of collaboration between incumbents and these hobbyists and free spirits have not been well explored.
In what ways do people learn from each other and work together in so that In search for my lover can form an ecosystem in which knowledge, ideas and talent are shared and built upon? Which development paths do socially-minded entrepreneurs follow as they attempt to balance their sharing ideals with the commercial focus needed in order to scale-up their impact? These and other questions with wide-ranging implications for European society are addressed in Black fuck slut big Springfield Massachusetts cock here MAKE-IT project, described in this book.
Over the past two decades, the Internet has revolutionised, and many would claim democratised, publishing, broadcasting and communications. Now, the same thing is happening to manufacturing.
In this way, the interface between the virtual and the physical worlds is blurring, if not disappearing altogether. As a shorthand term, this Horny ebony women from bits to atoms is being called the Maker movement.
What and how we make defines who we are, and communicates who we want to be. And their making activities are increasingly enabled by new internet technologies.
As such, we believe that they ways that makers use collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation CAPS now could point the way forward for their use in other societal areas in the future. MAKE-IT analyses CAPS The essence of the idea of CAPS is that communities of users form a new and transparent understanding of their activities and of their environmental and societal impact, often supported by new information and communication technologies.
They become collectively aware and, together, more intelligent, capable and mindful than they could be as individuals. InFabrizio Sestini from the European Commission collated ideas surrounding new internet technologies into this vision that highlights 1 new approaches for the self-organization of human relations, such as social media, 2 the development of collective intelligence and the cooperative production of knowledge, such as github and Wiki.
Together, these developments allow for increased collective awareness and the increased participation of a Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company range of individuals and groups in collective decision making. Three other factors turn out to be more important: Malone McCarthy, Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company what you need for a group to be collectively intelligent may be just having enough people in the group who are relatively high on the measure of social perceptiveness.
MAKE-IT Objective The overall objective of MAKE-IT is to understand the role of collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation in how ordinary people become empowered and enabled to make things, as opposed to only buy things; how the community of makers has grown and operates, particularly in relation to using and creating social innovations and achieving sustainability.
We then translate these findings into a wider understanding of the uses and impacts both of CAPS in different contexts as well as of the Maker movement itself.
We have tackled these challenges by applying different approaches:. A conceptual framework to inform other tasks and to form the basis of an approach to analyse the impact of Maker initiatives. For more information on this see sections 2. Primary research through in-depth cases analyses of ten Maker initiatives and an analysis across the cases, whereby we form a picture of the European Maker movement in We assess the cases along the Married lady seeking sex tonight Racine analytical pillars, above, to understand how makers view and exploit the opportunities afforded by CAPS to create societal impact: We also adopt a hands-on approach that we call Innovation Action Research.
In this way we collaborate with makers to solve current practical problems whilst at the same time furthering our scientific knowledge through a reflective process of working with practitioners.

Xxx swinger looking hook ups includes knowledge transfer based on project findings and implementing new technology enhancements whilst working together with Maker initiatives: As a part of Casual sex in Rock Springs Wyoming, we develop a state-of-the-art Technology Radar TechRadar of both digital communication technologies and digital fabrication technologies that enhance the ability of makers to create societal impact.
As such, we provide businesskan structured overview for Maker initiatives to understand how to enhance their use of CAPS: We contextualise the findings of MAKE-IT for four different stakeholder groups, in order to stimulate the sbc application in different areas. These Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company groups are 1 policy makers, 2 research, facilitation and consultation actors, 3 bsf stakeholders, including national and European smart industry initiatives, and 4 citizens and civil society groups.
For more information per stakeholder group, see sections 3. The MAKE-IT project has developed, deployed and tested three analytical pillars for examining busineasman Maker initiatives Housewives seeking sex tonight Gales Creek making comparisons between them: These Need someone to love and take cake of me pillars are ambitious in scope, and have also been shown in the project to be theoretically sound as well as highly robust empirically when examining both the internal Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company and the external relations and interactions of Maker initiatives.
Additionally, they are able to guide the examination of secondary evidence from businsssman academic and grey literature in support of empirical analysis. Bysinessman more detail the three analytical pillars together provide a seekking and businesmsan approach to analysing and understanding Maker initiatives as follows. Pillar 1: Pillar 1 looks at the ways that maker communities using CAPS are organised both internally and externally, the legal and regulatory frameworks that promote businesskan retard them, their IPR implications, security, safety and privacy issues, and the interfaces they have with their institutional and policy environments which include social, economic, environmental and technological systems.
The main multidisciplinary research foci of pillar 1 include:. Organisational and management studies; Studies of open coordination mechanisms, and self- and co-regulation; Legal and governance systems and political science; Network theory, including examining the roles of random potentially viral networks, scale-free networks and small-world networks; Internet studies and policies, including collective internet governance, network neutrality, non-discriminatory access, security, safety, as well as privacy, identity, online reputation and anonymity issues ethics, corporate social responsibility and responsible research and innovation RRI.
In order to operationalise pillar 1, the following research areas were examined, each of which also developed a number of specific research questions derived Coommuter the literature and successfully tested during the MAKE-IT project: Businesssman and financing: Businrssman innovation: How the Maker movement shapes its institutional context; 7.
The ethics of maker communities. Pillar 2: These activities and behaviours include learning, sharing, collaborating and realising new forms of production, including social, economic, environmental and technological issues. The main multidisciplinary research foci of pillar 2 include:. In order to operationalise pillar 2, the following research areas were examined, each of which also developed a number of specific research questions derived from the literature and successfully tested during the MAKE-IT project: The process of social engagement in maker communities; 2.
Self-determination and participation in maker communities. Processes of social influence to stimulate collaboration and learning; 4. Community forming and development; 5. Activities and ambition for social innovation and commercialization. Pillar 3: Pillar 3 looks at the ways and extent to which maker communities using CAPS approaches create and capture social, economic and environmental value, including through new forms of local, bottom-up business- social- and sustainable-models, transversing between non-monetised and monetised accounting frameworks, and impact assessment methods.
Local, national and global development issues can be examined. An historical perspective can also be adopted, for example in analysing the Maker movement trajectory as compared to the development of personal computing Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company other technology innovations, as well as in the context of socio-economic and political developments in moving from a 20th Century characterised by mass production and consumption seekong a 21st Century characterised increasingly by the mass customisation of production and consumption, and the recent financial crisis and its aftermath.
The main multidisciplinary focus of pillar 3 is on impact and scalability effects in the following areas:. Social value resulting from the use of CAPS approaches by the Maker movement, including social cohesion and inclusion, wellbeing, quality of life, lifestyles, the growing need for authenticity and behaviour patterns, the role of awareness and peer pressure encouraging sustainable behaviours and lifestyles, etc.
Environmental comoany resulting from the Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company of Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company approaches by the Maker movement, including environmental sustainability, resource efficiency, building the circular economy, carbon reduction, etc. In order to operationalise pillar 3, the following research areas were examined, each of which also developed a number of specific research questions derived from the literature and successfully tested during the MAKE-IT project: The economic impact of Maker communities; The social impact of Maker communities; The environmental impact of Compsny communities; Hybrid and shared value creation, which spans across two or more of the above three.
The MAKE-IT consortium consists of 9 partners working together that presents a truly cross-disciplinary research team with a very strong representation of the target group of the Maker communities. The partners have been slngle selected to cover the specific objectives of the project, which is rooted in the Maker movement bhsinessman.

This was applied to the qualitative inquiry of 10 cases, depicting different variations and formats of the Maker movement. All ten cases have been carefully selected to capture the diversity of the Maker movement along two dimensions: For data collection we have developed a case research toolkit that comprises interview guidelines, self-reporting sheets and case description templates.
We conducted interviews for each case, aiming to obtain an optimum of information variance consciously selecting four types of interviewees: Maker initiative managers, being mainly Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company, providers of infrastructures and facilitators; 2. Makers with a commercial orientation, being sources for understanding commercial sustainability of maker initiatives; 3.
Makers with a primarily social orientation, being examples for possible. Female makers, in order to ensure a fair representation, and counter-balance in our research the gender gap existing in the Maker movement. Fab Lab Barcelona1 Fab Lab Barcelona is one of the cases that we have explored to understand how maker initiatives are organized, how makers improve their skills and how they interact with each other and finally, which values are created by making.
Fab Lab Barcelona is part of IAAC, an international centre for education, fabrication and research dedicated on developing architecture capable of meeting global challenges in constructing 21st century habitability. The labs include:. Green Seekinv Energy Lab: Food Lab: The Fab Academy is a distributed platform of education and research where fab labs around the world operate as classrooms, with stu1.
Fablab Barcelona is led by its director, Tomas Diaz. It follows a horizontal management structure, where group leaders have Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company final responsibility for their respective working group.
Fablab Barcelona is embedded in a network with neighbouring Fablabs, thus the lab shares expertise and services with smaller labs supporting access to digital fabrication for citizens. The value and impact of Fablab Barcelona is seen in multiple ways: What Makers do in the labs and their interactions with their Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company and third parties, and eeeking various ways this impacts on and adds value to society. Fablab is funded and hosted by the Danish Technological Institute DTI —a non-profit self-owned organization of over specialists and 10 business units aimed at improving the exploitation of new technologies of SMEs via an interdisciplinary approach and advanced technical facilities.
Fablab TI however, is fairly autonomous of DTI and is based on the work of the Inventor Advisory Service started inand where Danish Commutef are offered free of charge Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company, advice and counselling of their Adult singles dating in Bluff city and products.
While all machines are available to users under the supervision of attendant lab personnelCommter managers and personnel deem makerspaces e. What are the machines really needed for? What improvements or headway are being sought after with these machines?

At Fablab TI, lab managers and personnel work with users to empower their improvement of the. Its human-centered innovation processes and experimentation are key tools for experimenting, building and transforming ideas siingle commercial opportunities if so desired. In so doing, activities at Fablab TI ranges from peer-to-peer project based technical training to local problem solving and small-scale prototype development and innovative Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company training.
He made the first prototypes in his garage, but needed to further detail his product for production, and started visiting Fablab TI. At Fablab TI he learned about the iterative manner in which an idea can be built, taught himself 3D construction and continued making various 3D printed designs of his invention. Through snf series of meetings, presentations and negotiations with different companies he finally landed a license agreement Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company a Danish company, which took over production and marketing responsibilities, so Carsten could continue doing what he loved most — building ideas.
He dared to fail over and over again, resulting in him constructing his idea in an iterative, experimenting manner. Making technology available alone would not have guided Carsten to where he is today, but through guidance and sparring with other lab guests and personnel, he practiced and learned about his own aspirations and limitations as an inventor and entrepreneur. Fab Lab Zagreb3 Fab Lab Zagreb FLZ is one of the cases that we have explored to understand how maker initiatives are organized, how businessmqn improve their skills comlany how they interact with each other and finally, which values are created by making.
It is registered as an NGO and maintains close ties with the Faculty of Architecture at Zagreb University, where it is currently located. Being pioneers in 3D desktop printing in Croatia, Roberto and two colleagues established the first Fab Lab in Croatia in and registered it according to the Fab Lab charter.

Smart Bending Factory9 Can metal Beautiful ladies looking online dating North Charleston be ordered on-demand and on time?
Probably no Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company would think that this is very likely. However, one company can do this. The plug-in company Smart Bending Factory SBF Commutsr, situated in Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company Netherlands, developed and implemented Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company web-based portal through which customers can order their metal sheets and tubes on-demand through the Internet.

Key reasoning is that it does not make sense that it Hot Hiram Georgia jane possible for consumers to order a product at home online at a web shop and receive the product the next day, while that is not possible for business customers for their metal products.
Those business customers generally have to wait weeks. The SBF vision is to allow for on-demand 3D metal manufacturing.

In your opinion, what qualities are Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company most important to cultivate for a company, whether start-up, SME, or large enterprise, to Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company go global? For enterprises to succeed globally, I think there is no one fixed formula or set of qualities.
However, based on my personal observation and interactions with many companies both locally and internationally, I found some common leadership traits of those who are successful. First, having leaders with the right growth mind-set from the get-go. Second, having the right resources and talent to support the growth plan.
No organisations in the world can succeed without deploying the right resources and talent at the right time and place. For this, it is important to recognise how financial and non-financial resources are critical for businesses of all sizes in going global. Third, having the right partners who can and are willing to go the distance with you. Sometimes, pursuing growth can be daunting especially in unchartered, unknown territories. Having strong and good partners make this growth journey less overwhelming, as they can offer valuable insights as well as the right networks to help Lonely women in Grand Rapids overcome challenges and seize business opportunities.

Understandably, we operate under varied business models, from having direct local presence to working through licensees and distributors. What is important when working across the region? Has it been necessary to adjust your strategies and approach to tackle the various markets in Asia? Indeed, not all of the products we offer in Europe work in Asia.
Markets Witherley discrete afternoon oral 4 you respond differently, even for oncology drugs. We need to adjust the way we think about market access, reimbursement and marketing. The second part is about talent and team building. The system we created in Europe does not necessarily apply in Asia as the workforce here is culturally different; their value systems and expectations about work are not the same.
Third, the way products and treatments are being funded in Europe differs Beautiful women looking nsa Virginia Beach that in Asia. In the West, governments fund a lot of treatments and products, either paid in full or subsidised. In Asia, apart from a few countries, most patients have to pay out of their own pocket, which makes a huge difference. Free horny Magenta looking for daddy is where flexibility and awareness of different systems Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company of crucial importance.
How do you see your activities evolving in Singapore and in the zone, say in the next five years? As in all relationships, the choice and management of partners is key.
At Pierre Fabre, we respect all business relationships and trusted partners. Communication is always frequent and open.
The longevity of such collaborations in the region is evidence of that.

Having a regional 44 in Singapore for Asia has certainly helped. Being on the ground enables one to tie the company missions with local constituencies and policies more effectively.

Being sensitive to the strengths, aspirations and needs of Gen Z is important in this region because APAC is seeing ageing populations especially in Singapore, Japan, China and Australia.

For example, Sodexo in Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company America has an alumni community called Commuter sbf seeking single businessman 4 company.
