  2. 2. presentations
  3. 3. What and Who? • 20+ blogposts • Alexander Zurita • 9 video interviews (blips) • Andrea Carvajal • 112 posters • Carlos Saa • 30+ presentations • Edith Hesse • Edwin Saavedra • 100+ photos • Fernando Pino • Gladys Rodriguez • Idris Jones • 800+ blog visits • Juan Jose Saba • 350+ blip views • Maria Fernanda Mejia • 1000+ slide views • Mariano Mejia • 570+ photo views • Neil Palmer • Olga Lucia Gonzalez • Olive Wahura T’hiongo • Simone Staiger-Rivas
  4. 4. AA Approach • Consolidate available knowledge information and data in CIAT, investing in various actions to maximize the accessibility of our work. • Extend this approach with our partners across this region, and perhaps beyond, to help create a Latin American ‘Agricultural Commons’ that transforms the way knowledge is generated and applied in the region.
  5. 5. Actions 1. Use ‘open’ as the default setting to share our research outputs. Adopt a suitable ‘creative commons’ license. 2. Ensure that copyright agreements with publishers allow us to retain CIAT rights to re-use the publications and for us to deposit them in our open repositories. 3. Look at our agreements with partners, collaborators, funders and others to ensure any outputs they generate are also published and deposited under similar licenses. 4. ‘All of CIAT’ approach and strategy to guide information, knowledge, data and communication policies. 5. Deposit all CIAT research outputs in publicly-accessible repositories. Some of our internal repositories may need to be reviewed and migrated outside our intranet. 6. Brush up our skills. Equip staff to become ‘smarter’ communicators and sharers throughout the research cycle.
  6. 6. Actions 1. Try out social media like blogs and video that can increase our ‘social footprint’ – beyond words and text! 2. Support other innovative applications, such as geo-spatial applications where we have a lot already to build on. There may be other applications like mobile devices or participatory video that are worth exploring. 3. Improve our web presence. 4. Develop specialized knowledge sharing platforms that reinforce and give greater visibility to what we do. 5. Look at our personnel systems to provide incentives to such activities that result in open and accessible, as well as high quality, research. 6. Sufficient bandwidth and appropriate use of it
  7. 7. Task Force? • Center-wide forum that brings the different perspectives and expertise together. • Set up a knowledge ‘task force’ to give us impetus and guidance in the coming months
