Open as a Tool to Change Ecosystems

14 February 2018, 12:00 - 14:00

Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building

Openness can be used strategically to alter the status quo, disrupt ecosystems and technology incumbents, but there are questions as to the effectiveness, extent, timing and impact of open strategies. This session will look into how open technologies have changed ecosystems drawing on case studies in several sectors and also examine how emerging technologies such as the blockchain can themselves change modes and strategies for openness. 


Readings and links to the online papers and group annotations will be distributed by email, please contact to sign up for the whole series or individual sessions.
