Knowledge Economies

The Knowledge Economies program works on the organization and regulation of the knowledge-based economy, in the US and around the world. The program includes projects on intellectual property policies, changing forms of cultural production, and the ongoing reorganization of the businesses and institutions that mediate access to knowledge. 

Major projects include The Open Syllabus Project, which is building tools for mapping and understanding university curricula; The Takedown Project, which explores the regulation of online speech; and The Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest, an annual gathering of IP experts and stakeholders that the Assembly co-founded and co-organizes.
