What is Innovation System Structural Reform?
The innovation system structural reform component will provide a platform for the creation of new mechanisms in licensing, relationships, contracts and policy at both national and international levels.
Salient policy initiatives will be used to intervene in national and international discourse and policy creation to increase fairness in access to the tools of innovation as a fundamental human right.
One of the tools we provide, the BiOS (Biological Open Source) license, is already in use by a growing number of companies and public research institutions that have agreed to terms of sharing the technology, any improvements, and any safety data. You may wish to find out whether the public institutions funded by your taxpayer dollars are willing to share under these terms.
We also provide an internet-based Discussion Forum for professionals and the public to discuss pertinent issues. We encourage you to join the discussion.
