Capacity building and enabling research as a public good to be funded is one of our passions at STN. We are reinventing capacity building and public goods R&D through a number of initiatives including:
1. Casugol partnership. This partnership is with Singapore-based technical education and certificates service provider Casugol. Casugol has a strong presence across South East Asia, and the partnership sees STN become Casugol’s global exclusive blockchain content creation and delivery partner. The partnership will lay the foundations for the progressive establishment of STN Academies across the world.
2. Patents as Public Goods. The R&D team is working through the design of a tokenised fractionalisation protocol to enable patents to be funded and registered to distributed networks of rights holders. 3. Tokenised R&D. Tokenisation of R&D aims to properly track research work and effort, and link it ultimately to the patents as a public goods initiative. The tokenisation of research is all about enabling post hoc valorisation of research effort.
