technological–social platform for modeling sustainable value creation, based on output collaborative peer through Internet.
The Commons-based peer production (CBPP) or commons production between equal is an innovative emerging model and production in the creative energy of a large number of citizens are coordinates generally supported by a digital platform -out parameters to the hierarchical organization traditionally result procomunes public provision of resources. of
Thus were built so well known projects like GNU / Linux, Wikipedia, SETi or Open Street Map, and recently it is expanding to other areas of activity, such as citizen science, product design, management of common areas and sources of open data. The project P2Pvalue part of a mapping exercise diffusion and hybridization of peer production, and investigates the conditions fostering collaborative creation, and the logic value of these emerging forms. the
research results will: develop a web platform for sustainable communities based CBPP
decentralized architecture; the design of public policies promote the commons; and facilitate networking and promotion of sector.
Exchange regarding the criteria for selecting candidates:
1.–The usefulness of the study ahead of its actual application Empirical research project will serve to inform the design and development of a technology platform based on decentralized technology will facilitate the sustainability of such collaborative communities.
Also for the construction of tools to help networking and increased promotion of the sector. In this regard, the project has developed a map and directory collaborative production:
It also has an extensive outreach program and creation of community around the values of collaborative production commons peer (one third of the project budget will
2. Innovation Research
The research is innovative from several points of view. a partly because of its methodological pluralism. It combines an analysis Statistical 300 cases, 20 cases studies based on ethnography digital, a survey of 200 cases, the legal analysis of 4 cases, the development of “agent-based modeling” for testing the results from computational simulation, and implementation experiments in adopting the platform communities. It is the first
research project that combines many methodological approaches, and benchmarking much larger samples and with the comparison of in-depth case analysis.
Is also innovative project from the standpoint of knowledge policy, committed by knowledge

The dissemination of scientific results: based on logic “Release soon and frequently” with reports under free license accessible on the web. The scientific publication of results prioritizes open access journals, and conferences that are associated with open access journals.
The scientific databases generated by the project will be free license and will be available from a year of its collection.
3. The involvement of people outside the scientific field in conduct of the study
The project combines the knowledge that comes from practice with the based on empirical research. The directory is one of the tools based on the systematization of knowledge
and creating practical tools designed directly for the development of the sector.
Among the 6 members of the project consortium (Autonomous University Barcelona, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Universidad de Surrey, University of Milan, and CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)) is the P2P Foundation. The directory and mapping of CBPP has been developed and maintained by a methodology
open collaborative, which contribute practitioners and experts, addition researchers. Collaborations in the development of directory have also been established chapters OKFN.
Project members are part of the development community Apache Wave software, or group of federated social networks W3C.
Project Duration: From October 2013 to 2016.
