Maker Collaboration with Companies, in Prototyping Activities in Product Development | Survey, Thesis Answered

I would greatly appreciate it if you could find the time to fill in my survey, here: https://forms.gle/YHHbEzEy9NGQVFJGA

I'm studying my masters, in Design and Innovation, at The Technical University of Denmark. The thesis project is to develop a prototyping tool to help companies engage with the maker movement, in their prototyping activities. I'm trying to identify how makers can benefit companies in collaboration and vise versa.

To put it bluntly, we know makers (and I include myself as a 'maker') are much better at producing low cost solutions to novel problems using limited resources, than most companies. I'm trying to make a tool which will help facilitate collaboration and co-design between product developers and makers, in a way that's mutually beneficial.

The survey should only take 10-15 minutes maximum.

I would also appreciate it if you could share it among your various maker communities and friends who call themselves makers!

Many many thanks in advance.
