Just One Giant Lab
Just One Giant Lab (JOGL) is the first research and innovation laboratory operating as a distributed, open and massive mobilisation platform for volunteer-based, IP-free task solving. JOGL helps sync humanity onto solving our most urgent and important problems using Open Science, Responsible Innovation and Continuous Learning. JOGL partners with academic labs, companies, startups, foundations, NGOs and public services to create massive mobilisation on distributed and participatory research programs for understanding and solving Health, Environmental, Social and Humanitarian issues.
By making the process of contributing toon solving important challenges accessible and valorizing for anyone, we want to multiply the number of contributors by 10 (from 5 millions to 50 millions) in 10 years, while making all produced knowledge, tools and methodologies universally open for use and adaptation.
Help the creation of open knowledge, tools and methodologies to understand and solve our most important and urgent problems.
Sync humanity for long-term impact through collaboration.
Beyond the academic
Go beyond the traditional academic and corporate frameworks to improve research and collaboration.
Provide legitimacy and opportunities to leaders and contributors around the world.
Offer a public window to the world of inventors and doers, their passion, their struggling and their achievement.
Give contributors direct access to the doers of the world and make research and innovation more inclusive, accessible and responsible.
Our experience working with communities and distributed projects has given us the understanding of the key role of “Trust” to make collaborations fruitful. In order to establish a trustful relationship between contributors who don’t necessarily know each other, we will introduce roles within JOGL that will state a set of responsibilities for each of them. Succeeding in facing those responsibilities will make you more trustworthy within your community and the global JOGL community. Failing them will however have the opposite effect.
Here are the three roles that we will implement at first within JOGL:
- Leader: A legitimate (group of) person who has for responsibility to bring a project to completion or to a given milestone. A leader is expected to have experience, time, resources to make the project successful. A leader can be for example a researcher, an entrepreneur, a project director within an NGO or public institution.
- Contributor (Jogler): Any person who wants to commit to helping a project on a given need. A contributor’s responsibility is to do what he/she commited on. A contributor is expected to have relevant experience, time and autonomy. A contributor can be for example a professional, a student, an amateur or any person capable of matching the level of difficulty of the need.
- Enabler: An organization who seeks to provide resources and opportunities to impactful projects or who wishes to organize a challenge to birth new initiatives. An enabler’s responsibility is to deliver the resources it promised. An enabler can be a foundation, a research/innovation fund, a big or small company, a non-profit. It can provides tools (software/hardware), skills (pro bono), workspace, free services, visibility and/or funding.
