Agenda

What is THINK: Open about?

Join us at THINK: Open on May 24, 2017, as we bring together leaders of our public institutions, subject matter experts, and practitioners to understand how the commons will impact our research, education and innovation sectors.

We’ll consider the technology, policies and relationships that enable access, modification, and sharing of the ideas, data and content required to accelerate innovation.
