‘Perspectives on Open Science’, an international workshop on Open Science convened by GYA Co-Chair Moritz Riede (UK) and GYA Open Science Working Group co-lead Koen Vermeir (France) will be held on 20 March 2018 in Oxford (UK).
The workshop is being co-organised by the GYA and Maison Française d’Oxford.
Theme: Open Science is currently undergoing major changes. From an activist movement promoting the open sharing of scientific results it has transformed into the dominant framework in European science policy. On the way, implementation is increasingly recognised to require diverse practices, institutions and infrastructures, and Open Science has become more complex and ambiguous. In this workshop, we will discuss the new identities of Open Science and the new challenges the movement is facing. We will evaluate whether old strategies and ideas are still effective and relevant and explore areas of Open Science that have largely remained off the radar.
To close the workshop, we will put the spotlight on one of these forgotten pillars of Open Science, the fair access to research software, in particular in low and middle income countries, and a new GYA report on ‘Global Access to Research Software‘ will be launched.
Keynote lecture: Peter Murray-Rust (University of Cambridge): ‘Young scientists in an age of Knowledge Capitalism’
