RGCS is both an alternative learned society, a think tank and an immaterial maker space about and for new work practices. Collaborative communities and collaborative movements (coworkers, makers, hackers, DIY) are both a research object and a lever to transform work practices.
Since late 2016, the network co-produces a new research method (Open Walked Event-Based Experimentations) aiming at transforming jointly academic and entrepreneurial work practices. This method aims at becoming a #commons for academics and entrepreneurs involved in it (e.g. with a sharing of the symbolic capital of impact and citations).
