An initiative which supports funders to embed Open Intellectual Property into their work

Our Open IP for Funders initiative - run as a contribution to Catalyst - aims to encourage and support funders to implement open IP (intellectual property) within grant agreements, and to encourage open IP amongst the charities they support - both contributing to how we can encourage reuse of community and sector owned tech.

As part of the initiative, a collaboration has recently been put in place with Power to Change’s Discovery fund, acceptance onto which includes a place on CAST’s new Community Explore programme.

We also facilitate a growing peer group of funders exploring this area - please get in touch if you'd like to join.
