From Danish biology garages to Google's headquarters: an entirely new learning culture together with the internet is pushing the boundaries of research and knowledge creation, and of how both are done today. Meet the experimental researchers Allan Alfred and Katja Gry, whose latest documentary is directly based on a PhD project in philosophy, and who literally have travelled around the globe to exchange ideas with some of the front runners in the new DIY wave of hackerspaces and open-source research. And the lines of the journey across the globe speak for themselves: it's all about networking, cooperation and exchange. 'Collaboration - On the Edge of a New Paradigm?' explains the philosophical development from the isolated geniuses of the Renaissance to the knowledge-related challenges - and opportunities - that society is facing in the age of the internet, where we are on the threshold of a revolutionary paradigm shift. Hear for yourself from some of the foremost minds of modern research.
