Tallinn University of Technology

The Cosmolocalism project of TalTech’s Ragnar Nurkse Department of Innovation and Governance furthers our understanding of how to create a sustainable economy through commons. Watch the video to find out what this means.

The research project analyses, tests and evaluates a mode of production based on digital commons, such as open knowledge and design, and the confluence of local manufacturing and automation technologies (from 3D printing to simpler tools and crafts). Such an approach may start a transition to new and inclusive production models, such as the so-called design global, manufacture local (DGML) model.

Cosmolocalism pilot projects will be carried out in at least three communities: Greece, Bhutan and Estonia.

The video was produced in co-operation with the Estonian Research Council and funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research.
