Funding applications written on-wiki
- Many papers nowadays have an "open questions" section or similar - such gaps (cf. grey labels in "More information" section at Fishbase) could be signaled very efficiently if knowledge were properly and comprehensively contextualized, providing opportunities for both researchers and funders.
- The current system of reviewing research by default before it is done blocks innovation and should be enriched with other means of selection — why not allocate some of the research money for those who made major contributions to structure (wiki-wise) the existing knowledge in a given field?
