Open systems need an engaged community, to grow, develop and sustain. We actively manage our partners, and the wider community.
We term this the Open PHACTS Waiting Room, managed by a Gatekeeper (Bryn Williams-Jones)
We hold regular community workshops and events
If you think you can contribute to the Open PHACTS project, or would like to know more, here are the various levels at which you can engage with the Open PHACTS community:
Associated Partners: We have a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) ready to sign for mutual support and exchange of ideas, data or technology. As an Associated Partner you will be the first to hear about the latest developments in the Open PHACTS project and you will also have the opportunity to present ideas and use cases to the core Open PHACTS team.
Development Partnerships: Once you are an Associated Partner and want to do some more specific development work together with us (e.g. develop APIs, new data, algorithms etc), you can enter a Development Partnership with the Open PHACTS project. This will give you greater access to the core of the project. Development Partnerships are focused on defined pieces of work of mutual interest and an agreed collaborative annex is added to the MoU.
Joining the consortium: If you would like to become an integral part of the project, it might be worth to consider the option to join the Open PHACTS consortium.
Bryn Williams-Jones is the gatekeeper for our partners, so as a first step email Bryn (bryn[at]connecteddiscovery.com) to start getting involved in Open PHACTS.
