  • Strive for integrative insights on the open technologies and the peer-to-peer practices.
  • Provide consultancy support to organisations and institutions regarding open technologies and relevant socio-economic trends.
  • Produce innovative, global techno-economic solutions to local problems.
  • Write, edit and publish articles, reports and books in the diverse range of topics we investigate.
  • Organise open events for reflection and action as well as to educate people about critical and creative tools for society-changing.

The P2P Lab is constantly on the look-out for co-operation on interesting projects.
