Open by Default 2012 @ DTU

Events,Presentations November 30, 2012 8:54 pm

Last Thursday, alongside Mikael Elbæk and Ivo Grigorov, I co-organised  the first “Open by Default” event at DTU. The event was a great experience where we shared with a group of PhDs the ins and outs of openness in academia (and science in general).

Some of the things we talked about included:

➡ Why should I care about openness?

➡ What are the options to publish my scientific content and keep it open to everyone?

➡ Are patents an effective way to transfer technologies to society?

➡ Is intellectual property being an enabler of scientific and technological advance?

➡ Are there concrete examples of the open science impact?

The event website will remain online and contains really interesting content, including videos and slides. You can check it out here:

My slides and recorded audio are available below. Hope you find this useful. Networked science will have a major impact not only in academia but also in society but to get the best out of it and accelerate this process we need to be as informed as possible.
