A distributed answer to a global crisis: ideas, communities and rules


Open live Webinar lead by OpenDot

Because of Covid-19 crisis more than 5 millions solutions have been produced in less than 5 weeks by makers and designers all around the World, to help hospitals and other structures, to tackle the spread of the virus. Far more than any single industry could have achieved in such a short amount of time.

This astonishing number shows how collaboration, digital technologies and a distributed system of local production can really make a difference, not just in helping the healthcare system during this emergency, but in the everyday activities too.

This is also the first time in which such a large community gets in contact with a complex yet fundamental regulatory framework, to guarantee the safety of the solutions produced.

What has been done? How to contribute? What should we know when doing health&care solutions?

We are discussing on this with:
Dr. Reeser, contributor and fundraiser for the “Intubation box”
Elisabetta Biasin & Erik Kamenjasevic, legal researchers from CiTiP – Centre for IT & IP Law – Ku Leuven
Sabrina Merlo, local response lead from OSMS (Open Source Medical Supplies)
