Workshop : Size Matters? Evaluating prosperity and growth workshop on May 31st – Brussels

Join 4-hours workshop to evaluating how open source, maker and digital projects can grow, how they are growing and having a better impact and what factors and values make a project sustainable beyond financial and commercial parameters.

The hands-on session focuses on key questions such as:
– can makers project scale considering societal and community goods as parameters?
