In this presentation, Paul Stacey and Garin Fons discuss the work of a recent collaboration with Theresa Bernardo (Michigan State University) to draft an open models concept paper for the World Bank's Global Food Safety Partnership (GFSP) – a public-private initiative focused on improving the safety of food and food systems in middle-income and developing countries.

In December 2013, the GFSP Knowledge and Learning Working Group (KLWG) formed an open models sub-working group to generate a range of open models that would enhance the scalability and sustainability of food safety. As a part of this working group, the primary goal of our team was to show how open models could support the GFSP's efforts to help ensure safe food, increase food supply chain value, accelerate economic growth, alleviate rural poverty, and improve public health outcomes. We identified open value propositions for GFSP stakeholders and proposed a framework for creating and structuring that value.

We argue that open models have the potential to significantly improve global food safety systems and that open models increase opportunities to form a new paradigm for multi-stakeholder collaboration and capacity building. We will discuss how we see the many forms of openness, including such things as Open Educational Resources (OER), Open Access (OA), open data, and open policy being adopted across all stakeholders and at different stages of knowledge production and dissemination.
