Scientific knowledge is created in publicly-funded universities. More often than not, that same knowledge is turned into commodities, such as medicines or technologies, that are then sold to the public to make a profit.
What if knowledge was not enclosed by a select few profit driven private actors? What if there was a way to organize the production, management and distribution of knowledge in a more equitable and shared way?
Knowledge commons can be an antidote to monopolies in every industry, improve accessibility and spur innovation. In a world that is increasingly knowledge and data-driven, the question of how we organize it becomes more urgent with every passing day.
