Cambia Initiative for Open Innovation
The Initiative for Open Innovation is a new grant funded facility aiming to foster "equity in science" by making patent information more accessible and navigable. The Initiative works to centralize the fragmented approach to innovation. It builds upon the Patent Lens, an open source tool that makes full text patent information accessible to the public. Beginning with the life sciences and global health, the Initiative will landscape the patents in a given sector through a web based platform and display the information as an ecosystem of knowledge.
