Knowledge sharing has long been an important element of academic research. And now collective sharing and governance of data assets throughout the scientific community, including for-profit participants, is gaining momentum. During their webinar, Out in the Open: The Knowledge Commons Framework, Emily Lowe, Ben Klaber, and Professor Michael J. Madison, faculty director at PittLaw, will discuss issues related to knowledge commons. Topics will include the following:
- A fundamental overview of knowledge commons, including the framework’s strengths and weaknesses
- Standard requirements regarding data contribution, access, use, sharing, protection, and attribution
- How to decide if a knowledge commons framework is right for your business, and if so, how to implement it successfully
The webinar will be held on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm ET.
