This episode completes our little series about participation that started with Episode 15 . We take a closer look at participation in the context of open innovation processes using the example of “Appropedia”, a wiki-based ontology that was itself developed in a participatory manner. In this interview with Emilio Velis, we learn that participatory projects must always give the community involved the opportunity to learn.
