Oct 26 | 10:00-11:00: What’s open about Open Science Platforms for university-industry collaboration? The case of ODIN
Maria-Theresa Norn - Senior Researcher, DTU and Aarhus University
A number of Open Science Platforms (OSPs) have emerged worldwide to promote university-industry collaboration that adheres to open principles. That is, all research outputs must be shared in the public domain, and there can be no patents or other mechanisms that place restrictions on the further use of these outputs. Why have these OSPs emerged, how do they promote open collaboration, and why do researchers and firms contribute to them? The talk will address these questions, using insights from a comparative study of OSPs as well as from an in-depth study of a particular OSP, the Open Discovery Innovation Network (ODIN) at Aarhus University.
