[Toronto, ON] Decentralized Science (DeSci)

This is an informal meetup to discuss the emerging movement of Decentralized Science (DeSci). DeSci lies at the intersection between the ongoing efforts to change how knowledge is shared and efforts within the web 3.0 movement to shift ownership and value away from industry intermediaries*. These meetups are intended to be multi-disciplinary, encouraging discussions from all disciplines and walks of life.

This meetup will include an introduction to DeSci and some current projects in the space. We’ll end the event with a workshop aimed to define an initial shared purpose for the continuation of these meetups and discuss the question: “How might we open knowledge production to new players and ideas, fairer and freer forms of ownership and access?”

6:00 – 6:10pm – Welcome and Introductions

6:10- 6:25pm – Introduction to DeSci
