Towards Openness is a research driven knowledge base that seeks to provoke conversations and to advise decision makers towards building social and technological infrastructure for connected learning.

  • initiate need-based interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder, original research conversations to build new priorities and agenda for connected learning through distributed and collaborative research. (agenda setting)
  • translate and mediate different research learnings for decision makers and those who work at advising and influencing them in open and transparent consultations and workshops. (educational material)
