open genius: strumento per una scienza libera

submitted by: atnp lab

In this presentation, Andrea Gaggioli describes crowd-funding as a possible strategy to cope with the lack of investments in research, as well as to increase democratization in the sciences. Projects seeking funding could be stored in an online repository. Each project would include a description of its objectives, duration, and requested contribution. Investors (either people or funding agencies) could decide which projects to fund.
