Free collaboration networks

A Free Collaboration Network (FCN) is a network of people or organisations who provide free goods and services through volunteering and contributions. FCNs are considered to be vital stepping stones towards an open access economy as they help re-shape behaviour towards unconditional and implicit trading systems.

FCNs are growing in number all around the world. This directory therefore only represents a small fraction of those that exist. If you know of any not listed here, we invite you to edit the page and add it. Also, if you can't find one that you can engage with, you can consider creating your own.

There are many types, categorized here by services they provide:

Resource banks
If you need an object for a sporadic use of a few days or a weekend you can borrow it here.

Free digital repositories
