CREDIL - Implementing technical innovations via the Co-make strategy.

"Make or buy?" is the usual question for organizations (sponsors) thinking of implementing technical innovations in how they operate. CREDIL -- Center for Research and Experimental Development in Informatics Libre -- offers another choice. CREDIL provides a clearing-house to bring together those wanting informatics solutions with "makers" who know how to deploy and modify free/libre software and ideas to co-make innovative products and services.

The value proposition: by building on an existing, huge base of well-tested software and ideas, sponsors pay only for the development -- chiefly modifications to known technology -- needed to achieve their goals, and they can contract for part-time services of several makers in proportion to needs using CREDIL. The free/libre pool of contributors is repaid via the submission of developed materials back to the pool. These materials are the tools to create the products and services the sponsor uses to generate revenue.
