Open Climate Knowledge launches a Force11 Working Group—Join Up!

Open Climate Knowledge is an open research project supported by GenR. The project aims at making research related to climate change 100% open ASAP. To do this two strands of work are planned: firstly, data mining of open research paper repositories to build an open research knowledge base, and secondly, to make a plan for how to transition to 100% open. There is an open invitation to join the Force11 working group with an introductory video conference taking place on February 11th.
