Governing Pooled Knowledge Resources:
Building Institutions for Sustainable Scientific, Cultural and Genetic
Resource Commons

12-14th  September  2012

Université catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium




A variety of initiatives and policies have been proposed that are going
beyond "open access", and aim to facilitate more effective and extensive
(global) sharing on local and global pools of not only scientific
information and data but also genetic resources and cultural expressions.
There is thus a need to examine a number of these proposals' conceptual
foundations from the economic and legal perspectives and to analyze the
roles of the public domain and commons in facilitating sharing of scientific
and technical data, information and materials.

The 1st Global Thematic IASC Conference on the Knowledge Commons aims to
bring together leading people from a number of international scientific
research communities, social science researchers, practitioners and policy
analysts, to discuss the rationale and practical feasibility of
institutional arrangements designed to emulate key public domain conditions
for collaborative research.
