David Cuartielles | Platform design - the moving governance model
Download presentation
Overview of the talk
The co-design of new projects, products, and services is subject to the conditions of the always changing social component of the governance mechanisms. When creating new platforms, decisions are taken from the perspective of the functionality of the system, as time goes by, sustainability starts to play a larger role in the organization, which renders other considerations less important.
Who's David?
David Cuartielles is Co-founder of the Arduino platform, and a researcher at the Internet of Things and People group at Malmo University, Sweden. Currently researching maker culture in Spain as a collaborator of the Observatorio Maker.

Jessica Guy & Pablo Muñoz

Jessica Guy is a designer and action researcher at Fab Lab Barcelona. The focus of Jessica’s work is to investigate and explore the potentiality of community and capacity building activities in European research projects in a glocal framework. Seeking for a more circular economy in which we can share knowledge globally, reduce waste and produce locally. Currently, the focus of work sit’s within the EU Project Pop-Machina and Make Works. In the past, Jessica has successfully graduated in 2018 as an Industrial Designer (BA) at the Munich University for Applied Sciences and in 2019 at the Institute for Advanced Architecture in the Master in Design for Emergent Futures. Finally the participation in the accelerator program X-Futures, in 2019, has given Jessica the opportunity to work in a hybrid profile as a project manager, designer and researcher at the Fab City Hub Barcelona.

Pablo Muñoz Unceta is an architect specialized in urban design and planning. His main research and working fields are housing, circular economy and urban morphology. He has professional experience in Latin America and Europe in different projects and institutions on participatory planning, housing policies, transit oriented development, urban renewal and circular economy. He has been involved in teaching and taken part in research projects in PUCP University in Lima and TU Delft University in the Netherlands. He has collaborated with offices in Rotterdam, Barcelona, Madrid and Brussels in the intersection between design, spatial analysis and urban and housing policy. He currently works at Fab Lab Barcelona as a researcher in projects dealing with the transition to circular economy, urban renovation of industrial historic areas and sustainable development.

Overview of the presentation
The Pop-Machina Academy is an immersive circular making and innovation programme. The objective of the distributed online training programme is to provide local Maker Champions of the seven pilot cities of Pop-Machina with technical and practical know-how. The approach follows the principles of STEAM learning, Learning by Doing methodology and addresses circular and collaborative manufacturing.

Pop-Machina is a Horizon 2020 project that seeks to highlight and reinforce the links between the maker movement and circular economy in order to promote environmental sustainability and generate socio-economic benefits in European cities.

Pop-Machina Academy, as all the work developed by Fab Lab Barcelona, puts citizens at the core of a societal transformation towards an inclusive, collaborative and circular future. This distributed learning programme is inline the Fab City Full Stack approach which Fab Lab Barcelona elaborates in projects and initiatives such as Make Works, an online platform that connects different existing networks related to manufacturing.
