CREATe IP Summer Summit

when 26 June 2017 - 30 June 2017
language English
duration 1 week
fee GBP 1000

The “Open Science and Open Culture” summit lays the foundation to assess if countries in the global south need to move through traditional closed scientific and cultural models first. Are there opportunities to ‘leapfrog’ to open access and open data practices in educational resources and science, and to participatory digitization and disintermediated access to markets in relation to culture? What are the regulatory flexibilities, and legal and social hurdles to realising the benefits of openness?
