Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
How this works? Every person that is willing to open his research to the world can go into BTI and publish experiments, data, results and knowledge; other researches can add the same information to create a big database. But that's not all, as incentive, BTI will take the information that the researchers upload and create simple on-line experiments, so any person around the globe, even without science background, can help to generate massive data for the research. So, if you are not a scientist, you can go into the platform and perform activities that will improve the data volume of the research increasing the quality of the statistical projections and help to generate real breakthroughs.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
In 1996 an international group of scientist gathered in bermuda and discuss how the data from the Human Genome Project (HGP) should be release. They came with the idea of the "Bermuda Principles" a set of rules that says that the data should be release immediately to the public domain. This groundbreaking initiative had huge effects in how this particular project grow and accelerated the process of research.
The HGP took thirteen years and three billion dollars to sequence the first human genome. Now, after the Bermuda Principles, it is possible to sequence a human genome in a matter of days and just USD$1.000 of budget.
Imagine if we could extend this principles of open science into the most important world's problems, we could achieve amazing advances in medicine, technology and in the well-being of the world. We just need a place to collaborate with the right incentives.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
1.Academic Impact: Integration to the curriculum of universities and schools. This would allow institutions that do not have large resources for research to join the scientific experimentation for both: development and academic purposes.
2.Civil Society Impact: People outside the scientific community, promoting collaboration and joint development. Creation of opportunities for multidisciplinary interaction.
3.Global Impact: Acceleration of the process of scientific discovery, giving us the opportunity to benefit from achievements that would otherwise be available only for future generations
