Hi Yaccine,

Yes, it is definitely one of the key links. People may remember the 
Making it Matter <http://linkedup-project.eu/making-it-matter-workshop/> 
workshop we held last year which pulled together many of these areas.

Here we seem to be going back to that idea of equality - or maybe equity 
is a better word here.

I've just read this post: This map of the world’s scientific research is 
disturbingly unequal:
- which talks about how Open Access "/needs to broaden its focus from 
access to knowledge to full participation/" - this could be applied to 
many other open movements too.

Openness plays a vital role in the global south where the ability to pay 
is more compromised than in the western world.
