At the Berlin Symposium on Internet and Society (25 – 28th 2011), S. Friesike (Institut), T. Schildhauer (Institute of Electronic Business, Berlin), O. Gassmann and B. Widenmayer (both from University of St. Gallen, Switzerland) have presented a draft paper on Open Science.
They suggest eight trends in Open Science to follow. I find this interesting to follow.
- Role of research institutes: from ivory towers to knowledge barriers.
- Process: from local centers of basic research to global networks of applied research.
- Outsourcing research: from make to buy.
- Research culture: from closed disciplinary to open interdisciplinary thinking.
- Financing of research: from single-source to multiple-source funding.
- Focus of research: from broad to specified.
- Collaboration: from lone warriors to open research clusters.
- Patents: from stockpiling to patent donation.
