Innovation Matters: The Innovation Commons

Description

In this episode of Innovation Matters, we explore the concept of the commons as applied to innovation and knowledge rather than, in the way we are familiar with the term, to natural resources and land.

Our Guest, Dr. Jason Potts, Distinguished Professor of Economics at RMIT University in Australia and Co-director of the Blockchain Innovation Hub, argues that what holds back innovation is access to relevant information, and that the innovation commons, a system able to share and enable cooperation around inputs, ideas, and opportunities, should be nurtured to overcome such obstacles.
