I'm director of Kennisland an Amsterdam-based think tank focussing on complex challenges in society require new forms of innovation. I initiate new projects, advise governments, cultural heritage institutions and other organisations on copyright policy, open data and open innovation strategies. On behalf of Kennisland and public cultural heritage institutions, I advocate for more flexible copyright policies that better align with the needs of an inclusive digital society. I'm a board member of Creative Commons International and a board member of the Europeana Foundation.
I've been instrumental in writing Europeana's public domain charter and developing the Europeana Licensing Framework as well as the Europeana Publication Framework.
