European Open Science Cloud | Open Science - Research & Innovation - European Commission

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is envisaged as a stakeholder-driven infrastructure servicing science and innovation. More than a data repository, it will comprise technical elements of connectivity, hardware, repositories, data formats and API’s and it will offer access to a wide range of user-oriented services, data-management, associated HPC analytics environments, stewardship services and, notably, expertise. The EOSC is envisaged as a publicly governed endeavor, but given the scale foreseen and the need for long-term sustainability, parts of it will be realized in collaboration with the industry. High performance analytics environments and services may or may not be part of the EOSC, but will largely develop on top of well-defined and stable EOSC APIs.

Open Development Toolkit

Open Development Toolkit | Open Science for Development | Scoop.it

The Open Development Toolkit is a centralised hub around open development, bringing together tools and training materials with the aim of promoting use and re-use of online tools which make development data available. To begin with, the Toolkit will focus primarily on aid data, but we hope to move on to other areas of development data in the future.

Ecuador’s Pathbreaking Plan for Commons-Based Peer Production: An Update | David Bollier

Ecuador’s Pathbreaking Plan for Commons-Based Peer Production: An Update | David Bollier | Open Science for Development | Scoop.it

The nine-month effort in Ecuador to develop a new vision and policy architecture for commons-based peer production is coming into much sharper focus.  To refresh your memory on this project, the Government of Ecuador last year commissioned the FLOK Society (FLOK = “Free, libre, open knowledge”) to come up with a thoughtful plan for enabling every sector of Ecuador to be organized into open knowledge commons, to the maximum degree possible.  The project has now released a transition plan accompanied by more than a dozen policy frameworks for specific social and economic domains.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, April 1, 2014 4:28 PM

"Our work is dedicated to enacting global states of performance, in which everyone is engaged into embracing this possibility in constructive ways, using arts and creativity to interweave scientific, technical and technological possibilities with our imaginaries: a linguistic virus which shifts our perception of what is possible."

Clint Lalonde's curator insight, January 9, 2014 6:14 PM

“I wanted to talk about commercial aspects … So one of the interesting comments we have, is how could you not put the NC on your license, how could you agree to a CC-BY because somebody else can take your work and make money. That’s true but if we didn’t put that BY on there, there wouldn’t be other innovations. So, for example, another college… their bookstore wouldn’t be able to sell the book because they earn a profit on the hard copy of it. WebAssign … Collaborative Statistics was the first Open Ed Resource that they hooked up with to do a homework system with. Before they were working only with major publishers. But when I was starting to present at national conferences, and faculty said I love this book but I would never adopt it because I don’t want to go back to grading homework … The trade-off of a student spending $200 for a book that comes with a homework grading system, or me having to grade homework, they are going to buy the book.

Nigel Robertson 's curator insight, January 17, 2014 7:26 PM

A good rationale on using CC-BY rather thatn CC-BY-NC when publishing open textbooks.
