Distributed organisations for Collaborative Research

Martin Etzrodt

This essay is based on a lecture( held during the “Future of Science” session of the Marie Curie Alumni Association’s annual conference at the University of Vienna in February 2019. It highlights the historical roots of today’s challenges in science in scholarly communication, and how open access movements have begun to address this problem. 

It also proposes how distributed Web technologies  are poised to enable an entirely new way of communication and cooperation among scientist and citizens. This may lead to the long-sought cultural change within the scientific community, which may finally furnish us with the tools required to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.
