About the talk
Open Science: Sharing Knowledge in the Global Century is about how we address the profound challenges which now confront humanity – climate, the food crisis, environmental degradation, resource scarcity and disease – through science communication.
These call for the sharing of scientific knowledge among billions of humans, on a scale never before attempted.
Prof Julian Cribb talks about the thinking that inspired his new book and fleshes out some of his ideas for the Discovery audience.
