Open - from the fringe to the future of technologies

Martin F. Hohmann-Marriott presents "Open - from the fringe to the future of technologies".

Open software has become the foundation of the internet and computer operating systems. How could the work of self-organized volunteers out-compete software produced by highly paid professionals employed by industry giants?

In this seminar Martin will review the history, legal framework and technological achievements of open technologies. He will also point out current institutional obstacles to adopting open technologies and muse about what a future –- based on open technologies – may look like.

Martin Hohmann-Marriott is affiliated with the Department of Biotechnology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Centre for Sustainability, University of Otago, United Scientists CORE, Dunedin.

Martin has a Doctorate in Plant Biology, and has a background in bioimaging and biotechnology. When setting up his laboratory he decided to go “fully open”, using open solutions form planing experiments to publishing articles. Recently, he started a business that provides a collaborative work environment and develops open scientific equipment.
