Hello all,

We would like to share with you:

Dutch public broadcaster VPRO and the Institute for Sound and Vision are
cooperating with the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia Nederland to make
unique footage about groundbreaking sciene available.

The Mind of the Universe <https://www.vpro.nl/mindenglish> is an
international tv series and open source digital platform
<http://www.themindoftheuniverse.org/> about the rapid evolution of our
knowledge. Through interviews with groundbreaking scientists, it provides a
glimpse of tomorrow’s world,

The interviews were produced in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by Dutch public
broadcaster VPRO for a tv series, VPRO decided from the start that all
materials (including footage not used for the documentary) would be made
available under an open license. The platform Mind of the Universe Open
Science TV <http://www.themindoftheuniverse.org/> provides access to all
this material. It also has transcripts of the interviews, which are
 searchable by keyword. All materials can be downloaded and re-used, as
they were published under a CC-BY-SA license.

With the help of a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation, and working closely
with Wikimedia Nederland, the Institute for Sound and Vision will host a
series of events to promote use Mind of the Universe material throughout
the Wikimedia projects. They will also produce a white paper to share their
experiences and promote the concept of CC-BY-SA licensing among public
broadcasters worldwide. For the Wikimedia projects the Mind of the Universe
material is a valuable contribution: it is professionally made material,
featuring the leading scientists of today explaining the state of research
in their fields of work. The material also includes footage of research
facilities, including some which had never before allowed cameras inside.
Kind regards,

Wikimedia Nederland
