Help academia with open science initiatives
Numerous academic papers have been written about open science and many universities have already put in place open science initiatives. But what do they really mean by open? The term open, the open ethos and culture, the methodologies and tools used in open collaboration have originated outside academia. True open science cannot be developed within the academic institutional framework, it needs the help of open and collaborative networks that are nurturing open movement.
Holistic open science - see open science without your institutional bias
Open science strategy for academic institutions - why and how should your institution play the open science game
Open science initiative architecture and governance - how to structure your approach to open science
Network mapping for open science potential development - open and network wisely
Scientific labs and equipment for open science - adapt your practices to open science
McGill University - open hardware, Micromanipulators
"The Open Science (OS) movement explores and prototypes new practices and methods of production, diffusion, and use of knowledge. It consists of a variety of initiatives (Open Access, Open Data, Open Labs) aiming at a more open, transparent and collaborative scientific process both inside and outside academic research."

In today's hyperinnovative world economic agents need a comprehensive innovation strategy, one that takes into consideration open innovation. Open science becomes part of an open innovation approach when the new knowledge is put into practice by socioeconomic agents. How much research and development are economic agents going to do alone and how much are you going to do in collaboration with others, including academia? The answer to this question has multiple dimensions.
We thrive on open innovation.
We provide tools and methodology to engage in open innovation.
We also help business adapt to open innovation.
We bridge corporate with academia and the crowd.
Open innovation requires complex collaborations with various organizations and with the crowd Supply chains are under pressure to become more efficient and agile Dissemination and distribution requires direct engagement of early adapters, clients or users. Operations rely on multiple external parties, which requires managing a complex network of stakeholders. Organizations need to open and restructure as a network.
We are an open network.
We provide tools and governance to operate as an open network.
Today you can engage millions of individuals on platforms designed for social production. Have you thought about what that could mean for your initiatives?
We are the crowd
We provide tools and methods to engage with the crowd.
