   Ready for a rapid, radical reboot of the global innovation system for a
   truly free and open 21st century knowledge economy?  Join us at the first
   Open Science Summit, an attempt to gather all stakeholders who want to
   liberate our scientific and technological commons to enable an new era of
   decentralized, distributed innovation to solve humanity's greatest

   In the last ten years, a collection of burgeoning movements has begun the
   herculean task of overhauling the outmoded institutions and worldviews
   that make up our global scientific governance system. Proponents of the
   Access to Knowledge movement (A2K) have united around the principle that
   data and knowledge are *anti-rivalrous,* the value of information
   increases as it spreads.

   Open Access Journals have demonstrated a new path for publishing that
   utilizes the power of the internet to instantly distribute ideas instead
   of imposing artificial scarcity to prop up old business models. *Health
   2.0* entrepreneurs are seeking to apply the lessons of e-commerce to
   empower patients.

   However, these different efforts are each working on a piece of the
   problem without a view of the whole. It is not sufficient or realistic to
   tweak one component of the innovation system (eg, patent policy) and
   assume the others stay static. Instead, dynamic, interactive, nonlinear
   change is unfolding.

   The Open Science Summit is the first and only event to consider what
   happens throughout the entire innovation chain as reform in one area
   influences the prospects in others. In the best case scenario, a virtuous
   circle of mutually reinforcing shifts toward transparency and
   collaboration could unleash hitherto untapped reserves of human ingenuity.
