‘Open Business Models in an Open Market‘ is a 1-year project led by the Waag and financed by ClickNL, which aims to investigate the conditions for digital public spaces. With this project, we aim to investigate the conditions for digital public spaces. We are researching a ‘blueprint’ in which the fundamental aspects for an open market through open business models are examined as a counterpart to the business model of large tech companies. This is fundamental for the creative industry as ‘creative content producers’ and for digital creators (designers and developers) as for designers in particular. CivicIxD will contribute to the organisation of co-design sessions with citizens, creatives, initiatives and other stakeholders in order the gain insight and investigate which aspects participants consider important in an open market.
