Oxford Open Science -
 Does open science promote innovation?

Oxford e-Research Centre, 7 Keble Road
Wed 19 June, 19:00-20:30

Join Professor Chas Bountra to discuss the question of whether open science
approaches including greater transparency, sharing and collaboration will
lead to greater and faster scientific innovation. Chas is Chief Scientist
at the SGC (Structural Genomics Consortium) and an advocate of
pre-competitive open drug discovery:

“Society desperately needs more novel medicines, but drug discovery is too
expensive, takes too long and is too high risk for any one organisation. We
need to breakdown institutional and intellectual property barriers that
slow down or prevent collaboration."
