A PRIME-funded researcher. Prof. Andrew Webster and I have been awarded 10,000 EURO grant from the PRIME project to conduct FLOSS-related research. Through this grant, we have established cooperation with Prof. Andrea Bonaccorsi and Dr. Cristina Rossi to investigate the interactions and relationships between firms and the community in the FLOSS social world. There are three main research questions we try to answer in this project: 1) Firms business models: why hybrid business models can succeed? 2) Firms incentives: why do firms entre the open source field? 3) Firms participation in FLOSS projects: why do firms contribute to the private provision of collective goods?

METIS project
As a member of the METIS project funded by the Telematica Instituut, our research aims to understand the socio-technical dynamics in the knowledge-sharing process in on-line communities based at the corporate environment. I also coordinate a special interested group Knowledge and Communities at the VE-Forum as a related playground for our research.
