  19. 19. a collaborative multi-level ecosystem where smart factories are accessible by smaller players where SMEs are networked and adapted to continuous changes (not necessarily forced to scale) where peer- production and open networks support individuals and communities to succeed smart factories SMEs networks peer/ community production local global interoperability communities makers fab labs / microfactories people services services
  20. 20. fablabs and local SMEs networks can play a strategic role in this scenario
