ImageOpen Knowledge Foundation

The Open Knowledge Foundation was founded in 2004 with the simple aim of promoting (and protecting) open knowledge in the belief that more open approaches to the production, distribution and access to knowledge will have far-reaching social and commercial benefits.

What is Open Knowledge?

Simply put it is knowledge that is open! To be a bit more specific, by knowledge we mean any kind of content, information or data: genes to geodata, sonnets to statistics. By 'open' knowledge we mean knowledge which anyone is free to use, re-use and redistribute without legal, social or technological restriction.
If this still isn't detailed enough a really precise explanation of what this means can be found in the Open Knowledge Definition.

What We Do?

The Foundation exists to promote open knowledge in all ways possible. Central to this is being an open and participatory community and our allied role as a hub and partner for existing open knowledge networks. Beyond this we work specifically to:

  • Promote the idea of open knowledge. What it is? Why is it a good idea?
  • Campaign at the national and international level on open knowledge issues
  • Run 'Open Knowledge' events, for example, the forums and OKCON.
  • Develop tools that help us and help others develop open knowledge, for example, kforge .

There is a strong element emphasis here on decentralized collaboration and on developing networks. In particular, our primary aim is to help others develop open knowledge rather than doing it ourselves. Of course, that doesn't mean we don't develop specific projects (see for example open shakespeare) but we believe that the future lies in collaboration between a multitude of different groups and that no one group or organisation can, or should try to, 'do it all'.
