To accompany our two research publications -- Innovation and Intellectual Property: Collaborative Dynamics in Africa (UCT Press, 2013) and Knowledge and Innovation in Africa: Scenarios for the Future (Open A.I.R., 2013) -- Open A.I.R. has produced two feature videos, one devoted to each publication. Below are links to the videos, from our Afrinnovation YouTube channel, along with shorter "trailer" versions of each. And you can go here to download the books on which these videos are based.
Disclaimer: The views expressed in Open A.I.R. video productions -- featured on this page, elsewhere on this website, and on our Afrinnovation YouTube channel -- are those of the participants and interviewees in the videos and do not necessarily represent those of Open A.I.R. project supporters the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada, Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and Germany's Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
In December 2013, Open A.I.R hosted the Cape Town 2013 combined 3rd Global Congress on IP and the Public Interest and Open A.I.R. Conference on Innovation and IP in Africa. Videos clips of all the Congress and Conference keynote presentations and plenary sessions are available on Open A.I.R.'s Afrinnovation YouTube channel, and below are links to six of the keynotes.
Below are links to a set of videos produced in 2012 (two features and 12 short clips) in which Open A.I.R. members discuss the network's formation, its importance, its goals, its training and capacity-building goals, and the objectives of its research case studies.
