For those of you interested in commons and open source health technologies - this should be a really interesting event on the economics of all of that!
How to build a health commons approach to pandemic preparedness and response
Hybrid event, co-hosted by DNDi, UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose, & Friends of the Independent Panel
Mon 16 Jan, 2-4pm Geneva time
The aim of this workshop is to start to identify the key elements of a collective framework to organize, finance, and coordinate health innovation by public and private sectors. It will discuss some of the latest economic thinking on collective ownership, explore current examples of managing collective knowledge to develop vaccines and treatments for PPR and help identify areas where policy makers can and should act to increase our collective capabilities for the development and equitable delivery of health technologies for pandemic preparedness and response.
