I am Felipe Schmidt Fonseca, a Berlin-based Brazilian activist and free/open advocate turned researcher. I am a PhD candidate at the Northumbria University, investigating waste prevention and generous cities in the OpenDoTT project.

Through the last two decades I was a co-founder and leader of a number of community and networking initiatives dedicated to critical thinking (and making) in the crossroads between culture, science, technology and society. Some examples are Tropixel, MetaReciclagem, CulturaDigital.BR, Bricolabs, Rede//Labs, Lixo Eletrônico, Ciência Aberta Ubatuba, UbaLab. I was the user community manager of the Subutai Platform. I have an MA in Science Diffusion from Labjor at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil, acquired with a dissertation about networked experimental labs.
