Science Europe Conference on Open Science

Date & Time Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 October 2022
Location Hybrid

Invitation to Conference on Open Science

Science Europe invites institutional leaders, researchers at all stages of their career, and experts from the field to join its Conference on Open Science to discuss two key questions:

  • Is Open Science ready to become the norm in research?
  • How do we ensure this becomes an equitable transition?

To find answers to these questions, the conference will provide a comprehensive overview of practical and policy initiatives, research assessment reforms, and financial measures that support the transition to Open Science. We will also look forward at new and emerging trends.

Participation in the conference is free and open to everyone. Science Europe aims to be globally inclusive by making participation in the sessions available online.

About the Event

The EATRIS community are invited to discuss the many facets related to the transition in a highly interactive event. The conference will specifically cover:

  • Open Science and society, including equity
  • Open Access to all types of research outputs
  • Evolving research assessment and evaluation practices
  • Access to and use of open research infrastructures
  • Open Science policies

Science Europe aims to bring clarity to an increasingly complex transition and sprawling number of interlinked initiatives that affect the future of the research and innovation landscape. The plenary sessions will focus on strategy and direction, and set the stage for practical, action-oriented breakout discussions. The conference will be one of the first to establish and explore equity as a key consideration in its own right when discussing Open Science.
