Empowering the collective intelligence of innovators around the world is a powerful approach to rapidly accelerate the development of solutions to our grand challenges. Consider this example: Open source drug discovery. Discovering 100X more quickly, 100X less costly: goo.gl/ZLXKEP
80% of the world's challenges require a different approach to solving them, they require platform thinking as a public good.
When combined with Open Social Innovation (OSI) —where each innovation can be leveraged and improved by others, shared back to the open commons, to be used, adapted or improved— the focus remains on addressing unsolved challenges, instead of the reinvention of existing solutions. This drives efficiency and fosters frugal innovation.
Many attempts at open innovation have stumbled. We have worked with some of them, researched successful models and prototyped our own platform within open science and cancer research.
We found that open systems need three fundamentals, that only recently became viable to develop. 1. A blanket, frictionless Licence. 2. An Interoperability framework, 3. Intrinsic Incentives.
